f the distance the car traveled after applying the brakes equals 20 feet, what does that mean to the officer investigating the accident? (HINT: Let d = 20, bring 20 to the right so that the equation equals zero, identify the coefficients, A, B and C and then use the quadratic formula to solve mathematically.)
