Yes sir. I read it in an old book I found hidden in the town's library.

A book? I saw it painted on the wall of a cave in France.

Your visual is of great aid, but you are using it wrong!

So you know that A + B = 100

Remember that A and B is distance here.

What is the distance after the runner stopped accelerating? S = V * T
This translates into: B = v * 8.6

What is the distance during acceleration? S = 2(u + v) / t
This translates into: A = 2 (8,8 + v ) / 2 = 8,8 + v

Putting it all together:
100 = 8,8 + v + v*8,6

=> 91,2 = 9,6v
=> v = 91,2 / 9,6 = 9,5 m/s
