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
