A rocket is stopped 12 feet from a satellite when it begings accelerating away from the satellite at a constant rate of 12 feet per second. The distance between the rocket and the satellite is given by the polynormial P(t)= 6t^2+12. Find the distance between the rocet and the satellite 5 seconds after the rocket started moving.
