1. Can you help with question 10, very confused! It's supposed to be simple!

Just draw a velocity-time diagram for the journey.
3. But it's supposedly a SUVAT equation sheet?

For part a) think about what equations you need for the acceleration & deceleration phases (middle distance is known)

v = we know
u = we know
a = we know
s = we want
t = we don't care

Is there an equation you can form using the things you know & the thing you want (Hint: yes there is)

Fair enough, it's still a valid approach, however for SUVAT directly you then have to apply for part A.

Then have to apply two SUVAT equations for the second part at 3 different times. when it stops accelerating, when it begins decelerating, and when it comes to rest again. Drawing a diagram is useful here though.

I'm sure you know how to work out the average speed for the last part with the info you got.
6. Then for b) repeat as above
c) use your answers to a & b
