After 35 minutes of jogging, at the 9-km point in a total 10-km race, jogger A is behind the leader and moving at the same speed. What would have to be your accelearation in order to catch up to the finish line? Assuming the leader maintains a constant speed the rest of the race.

Is the answer 3.7

    It would depend entirely on where Jogger A was. And who are you. I see the leader (I know where he is), Jogger A, and "you".
