A car has an initial velocity driver sees an obstacle

A car has an initial velocity v0 when the driver sees an obstacle in the road in front of him. His reaction time is ∆tr, and the braking acceleration of the car is a. Show that the total stopping distance is sstop = vo ∆tr – vo2/2a. Remember that a is a negative number.
