I have been trying the formula vf^2=Vi^2+2AD and solving for A

SO my work has been

185^2=0^2+2A(467)

34225/934=A

36.643=A

I'm assuming my mistake is using speed as Vf but not sure how else to do it. TIA

You expressed the runway length in m (meters), but the takeoff speed is expressed in mi/h (miles/hour). You will need to do some units conversion.
