1. Answer: s(5) = -200,  v(5) = -90

s(10) = -900, v(10) = -190

Explanation:

Position: s(t)

Velocity:  s'(t) = v(t)                ⇒

Acceleration     v'(t) = a(t)      ⇒

We are given that acceleration a(t) = -20   and velocity v(t) = 10

(a) Input t = 5 into the s(t) and v(t) equations

s(5) = -10(5)² + 10(5)           v(5) = -20(5) + 10

=  -250  +  50                     = -100   +  10

=       -200                          =        -90

(b) Input t = 10 into the s(t) and v(t) equations

s(10) = -10(10)² + 10(10)           v(10) = -20(10) + 10

=  -1000  +  100                     = -200   +  10

=       -900                          =        -190
