An 18yearold runner can complete a 10.0km course with an average speed of 4.48 m/s. A 50yearold runner can cover the same distance with an average speed of 4.18 m/s. How much later should the younger runner start in order to finish the course at the same time as the older runner?

k i got this one..
find the t it takes for each runner using t=d/v....then subtract the times, and you have the answer ! 
thnx......i found out my mistake. i didn't convert the distance to meters :)

okay ! and which q'n did u get 255 m for?

lol sorry ma internet went all hay wire on me!!!
i got 255 m for the entire run for questin 7 
kk got that. did you get number 18?

no i didnt. did you get 13 and 14

nope :(
