    Answer:

    s = 92.36 m

    Explanation:

    The distance covered by an object moving with uniform speed is given by the following formula:

    s = vt

    where,

    s = distance covered by car during the time when driver was distracted in texting = ?

    v = uniform speed of car = (95 km/h)(1 h/3600 s)(1000 m/1 km) = 26.39 m/s

    t = time taken by the driver for texting = 3.5 s

    Therefore, using these values in equation, we get:

    s = (26.39 m/s)(3.5 s)

    s = 92.36 m
