We have no idea what "the system" is.

In physics, a descriptive labeled figure is often an important part of the problem. It isn't just answering word problems or plugging numbers into equations in a book.

Acceleration is

Delta V, over Delta T which equals

V2-V1, over Delta T

Delta referring to the change in velocity and change in time
