I’m sorry, that’s exactly the way the question is written! I was confused by it myself! I think it means:

Suppose you are at a concert and a singer’s voice is radio broadcast all around the world before reaching the radio you hold to your ear. This takes 1/8 seconds. If you’re close to the singer, you hear her voice in the air before you hear it from the radio. But, if you are far away, both signals will reach you at the same time. How many meters distant must you be for both signals to reach you at the same time??

My answer is either 1 meter or 8?? I think it's 8!
