If you are driving at 65mph along a straight road and you look to the side for 2 seconds, how far do you travel during this inattentive period? (Give the answer in meters and in feet)

Would i use d= d_0 + vt to solve this problem or would I use another equation?

When i used the above equation I got a ridiculously high number so I don't think that this equation is correct.

distance = rate*time

solve for distance.

rate = 65 miles/hour

time = 2 sec.

change 2 sec to hours first and the answer will come out in miles. Convert that to feet, then to meters. Post your work if you get stuck. I don't have my calculator handy but I think the distance in miles is about 0.04 mile which converts to about 200 feet or so. Check my thinking. Check my arithmetic. Those numbers are estimates.
