Newton Laws of Motion - traveling plane

A plane traveling at 18.5 m/s is brought to rest in a distance of 135 meters. To the nearest hundredth of a m/s2 what is the magnitude of its acceleration?

If the mass of the plane in the previous problem is 1.51 x 105 kg, to the nearest newton what is the magnitude of the retarding force?
