How much work must be done by the brakes to bring the bike and rider to a stop?

How far does the bicycle travel if it takes 4.5 s to come to rest?

What is the magnitude of the braking force?

I know the work in the first question is -6.43366 kJ but I have no idea how to find the distance and force.

distance= avgvelocity*time

force*distance= initial KE

solve for force.
