retrdation is negative acceleration.
In all equations of motion, there is positive sign to indicate acceleration, i.e. change of speed is positive with respect to time.
But if you are sure, motion is retarded motion, i.e. speed keep on decreasing with respect to time, use negative sign in the formula/equation.
