The formula below can be used to find the distances (d) traveled by an object, where v represents the initial velocity of the object, t represents the time, in seconds, and a represents the acceleration, in meters per second squared.

d=vt+1\2at2

A bicycle traveling at a velocity of 4.5 meters per second accelerates down a hill at a constant rate of 0.4 meters per second sqaured for 12 seconds. What is the distance, in meters, that the bicycle travels?
