    It is mainly a matter of units conversion.
    Decide on what units you'd like to use for the final answer (usually seconds for cars). Convert everything to metres and seconds and use
    time = (final velocity - initial velocity) / acceleration

    To change from mph to m/s
    multiply by
    63360*0.0254/3600
    =0.44704
    I get 12.4 seconds
