Kinematic Equations

Your textbook shows you a pile of equations relating distances, velocities, and accelerations for a variety of situations. For each of the equations labeled (a) to (f), start from the two conceptual equations, <v> = Δxt and <a> = Δvt then

All these equations appear in most physics textbooks. Are all these equations correct? How can they be? Don't they contradict each other? Discuss what you think about this.
