Question

A body is travelling along a straight line with constant acceleration $\quantity{a}{m\,s^{-2}}$. The body passes a fixed point $O$ on the line with velocity $\quantity{u}{m\,s^{-1}}$. Between $\quantity{4}{s}$ and $\quantity{5}{s}$ after passing $O$ the body travels $\quantity{10}{m}$. Between $\quantity{6}{s}$ and $\quantity{7}{s}$ after passing $O$ the body travels $\quantity{12}{m}$.

Calculate the values of $u$ and $a$.
