Two athletes began to run towards each other. The first athlete ran at a speed of 305 m / min, the second at 312 m / min. They met after 4 minutes. What was the distance between them at first?
Let’s find the speed at which the athletes approached in one minute if they were moving in the opposite direction:
1) 305 + 312 = 617 (m / min).
In a time equal to 4 minutes, they will run the distance:
2) 617 * 4 = 2468 (m).
Answer: initially there was a distance of 2468 meters between the athletes.
