Question #20896

in a 100m race A can beat B by 5m and B can beat C by 10m.By how much distance can A beat C in the race?

Expert's answer

Suppose the speed of the A player is 100%, then the B player moves at a speed 95%.

Speed of the player C is 90% of the player’s B speed.

95%*0.9=85.5% - part of A player's speed

Now we can easily find player’s C distance.

100*0.855=85.5(meters)

100-85.5=14.5(meters)

Answer: 14.5 meters
