Hey everyone, I was going through my summer AP packet and had a question about one of the questions. I solved all of it except the last part. If anyone could help, that would be great! Here it is:

A certain car is reported by a magazine to complete a "standing quarter mile" in 14.5 seconds with an ending speed of 95 mph.

(a) Determine the average acceleration.

(b) Assuming the acceleration is constant calculate the distance the car should travel in 14.5 seconds. How does this compare with one quarter mile? Explain the discrepancy!

So for (a) I got a = 2.928 m/s/s and for (b) I got 307.835m, which is less then it should be (a quarter mile is 402.25m). The part I'm confused about is the "explain the discrepancy" part. Thanks for your answers!

• ### What is Skyrim's storyline going to be like?

For those of you who have played Elder Scrolls before and/ or know a lot about Skyrim, can you guys tell me what Skyrim's storyline will be like? Like for example, is it closer to Final Fantasy or something like World of Warcraft? This is probably my deciding factor for getting the game, so any help is much appreciated. Thanks!

• ### Does this sentence sound right?

I'm writing a research paper on the Zodiac Killer and I'm not sure if one of the sentences in my intro is right or not. It says it's a fragment on Word, but I'm not sure of what to change. Thanks!!
