Sorry about the typo in the previous response.

`v*t = s - (1/2)*a*t^2`

=> `v = s/t - (1/2)*a*t`

In terms of other variables `v = s/t - (1/2)*a*t`

The expression for v has to be determined in terms of the other variables given that `s = vt + 1/2at^2`

s = `vt + 1/2at^2`

=> `v*t = s - (1/2)*a*t^2`

=> `v = s/t + (1/2)*a*t`

In terms of the other variables `v = s/t + (1/2)*a*t`
