Question 71

# Anil, Sunil, and Ravi run along a circular path of length 3 km, starting from the same point at the same time, and going in the clockwise direction. If they run at speeds of 15 km/hr, 10 km/hr, and 8 km/hr, respectively, how much distance in km will Ravi have run when Anil and Sunil meet again for the first time at the starting point?

Solution

Anil and Sunil will meet at a first point after LCM ( $$\frac{3}{15},\frac{3}{10}$$) = 3/5 hr

In the mean time, distance travelled by ravi = 8 * 3/5 = 4.8 km
