Correct Answer - distance travelled =96 cm

Given Initial velocity motorboat, u = 0

Acceleration of motorboat, a = 3.0 m `s^(-2)`

Time under consideration, t = 8.0 s

We know that Distance, s = ut + (1/2) `at^(2)`

Therefore, The distance travel by motorboat = `0xx8+(1//2)3.0xx8^(2)`

= `(1//2)xx3xx8xx8` m

= 96 m
