I was so confused by this question!! Any advice??

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

Would it be 1 meter or 8 meters?? I think it’s 8!

    I'm a little confused as to the exact question. The confusion may arise from some suspected typos or it may not but if you want to clean up the question it MAY make more sense.
