**Solution :**

In this quiestion it is given that —

Initial speed, u = 10 m/s

Final speed, v = 0 (Scooter stops)

Acceleration, a = -0.5 m/s2

And, Distance covered, s = ? (To be calculated)

Now, putting these above values in the third equation of motion :

**v**^{2 }= u^{2} + 2as

(0)^{2} = (10)^{2} + 2 x (-0.5) x s

0 = 100 - s

**s = 100 m**

Thus, the distance covered by the scooter is **100 meters**.
