Hello Joseph!

In solving this problem, you want to apply the definition of acceleration. Acceleration is the change in velocity divided by the change in time.

We can write this mathematically as:

v

_{f}= v_{o}+ a*tNow we can plug in our values:

26 = 20 + 6t (subtract 20 from both sides)

6 = 6t (divide both sides by 6)

1 = t

This calculation gives that t = 1 s.

Good luck!
