Numerical Problem for motion

Question:
A driver of a car travelling at 25m/s needs to quickly reduce the cars speed to 16m/s to round a curve in the highway.If the car deceleration has a magnitude of 60m/s^2.How far does it travel while reducing speed?

Attempt:

Using the equation
s=(vf^2-vi^2)/2a

s=(625-256)/(2*60)

s=3.075m

Am I correct?


Thank you.
