Question 85

After what time will the two persons Tez and Gati meet while moving around the circular track? Both of them start at the same point and at the same time.

I. Tez moves at a constant speed of 5 m/s, while Gati starts at a speed of 2 m/s and increases his speed by 0.5 m/s at the end of every second thereafter.

II. Gati can complete one entire lap in exactly 10 s.


From Statement 1, we know the speed of each runner.

From Statement 2, we can calculate the length of the track as we know the speed of runner every second.

But the answer cannot be determined as we do not know the direction of each runner.
