Homework Help: Physics Problem

Posted by Zack on Sunday, August 30, 2009 at 9:50pm.

A runner hopes to complete the 10,000m run in less than 30 minutes. After exactly 27 minutes, there are still 1100m to go. The runner must then accelerate at 0.20 m/s^2 for how many seconds in order to achieve the desired time?

I get 80.9 but I know that the answer is 3.1 seconds. How do you get 3.1 seconds? (What formula/processes?) Thanks.
