a). If the driver applies the brakes and the tires "lock up" so that they skid along the road, how far does the car travel before it comes to a stop?

b). If the same car is traveling downhill along a roas that makes an angle of 12 degrees, how much does the car's stopping distance increase?

c). What is the stopping disance on an uphill road with theta =12 degrees?

I need to show my work and am totally lost.
