An 18-year-old runner can complete a 10.0-km course with an average speed of 4.48 m/s. A 50-year-old 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 !
