    They run the same distance.

    Mikedistance=1mile/6min * (time-1)
    Dandistance=1mile/9min * time
    set the two distance equal

    1mile/6min (time-1)=1mile/9min (time
    or
    9(time-1)=6time
    you do it from here.
    time will be in minutes.
    How far? use either distance equation.
