Answer:s = 92.36 m

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

s = vtwhere,

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
