Vf=Vi+at Vf=? Vi=19 m/s a=1.8 m/s^2 t=6.8 Vf is what are we are trying to find. So, Vf=(19 m/s)+(1.8 m/s^2)x(6.8s) Vf= 31.24 m/s But because of significant figures, our final answer would be 31 m/s.

Are those negative signs or subtraction signs? Just follow BEDMAS, Brackets, exponents, division, multiplication, addition subtraction. Do all those in that order and you should get the right number. It does not matter if you do Multiplication or divsion first.
