I found the distance, which is 17 m, and the distance they still have to run to complete the race, which is 83m. I also calculated their second velocity, which is 9.8 m/s. But when I divide 83m by 9.8 m/s,(since that's the velocity for the rest of the race) I don't get the correct answer, which is 12 s.

d1 = 0.5 * 2.8 m/s^2 * (3.5 s)^2 = 17.15 m,

t(total) = 3.5 s + 82.85 m / 9.8 m/s =

3.5 + 8.5 = 12 s.
