A certain cable car is San Francisco can stop in 10 s when traveling at maximum speed. On one occasion, the driver sees a dog a distance d m in front of the car and slams on the brakes instantly. The car reaches the dog 7.48 s later, and the dog jumps off the track just in time. If the car travels 3.32 m beyond the position of the dog before coming to a stop, how far was the car from the dog? [Hint: You will need three equations.]
