1. As far as I understand the car gets 5m/s faster with every second. The first second it's traveling at 5m/s. It increases by 5m/s again at the 2nd second. It is now traveling 10m/s. By the third second it increases again by 5m/s.

2. vfinal=vinitial+at
you have given vinitial, acceleration. You want the time t. So what final velocity are you aiming for, vfinal?
