  1. This is an IVP (initial value problem).

    x"(t)=(6t-4) ms-2 ....(1)

    "...if the particle is at origin and has a velocity of ? when t=0."

    Integrate (1) with respect to t to find x'(t) and x(t). Do not forget the integration constants at each integration.

    Use the initial conditions
    x(0)=0 and x'(0)=(???)
    to find C1 and C2 (int. constants).
    When C1 and C2 are known, evaluate
    x(3) and x'(3) as required.
