    The squared business means Vivian is walking at 1.3 m/s. When she quickens her pace, the next second she is walking at 1.3 + 0.09 m/s and the next second at 1.3 + 0.09 + 0.09 m/s etc. The m/s^s is read meters per second squared OR you can think of it as meters per second per second. Sp at the end of 10 seconds, Vivian is walking at ???.
