You are driving your car along a country road at a speed of 26.0 m/s. As you come over the crest of a hill, you notice a farm tractor 25 m ahead of you on the road, moving in the same direction as you at a speed of 12.0 m/s. You immediately slam on your brakes and slow down with a constant acceleration of magnitude 8 m/s2. Will you hit the tractor before you stop?
