A jumbo jet taxiing down the runway receives word that it must return to the gate to pick up an important passenger who was late to his connecting flight. The jet is traveling at 45.0 m/s when the pilot resieves the messae. What is the acceleration of the plane if it takes the pilot 5.00 s to bring the plane to halt?

i need the work too not just the answer, i need to know how it is done.. the steps and stuff,

• physics -

Vfinal=vinitial + a*t

you know all except a, solve for that. Notice it is negative.
