Question

# Julie and Jeanette enjoy finishing their 6 km morning run together. Julie runs at an average speed of 10 km/h and Jeanette runs at an average speed of 3 m/s. If Julie leaves at 8 a.m., at what time should Jeanette leave if they are to finish their run at the same time?

Hint:

### When two quantities of different units are compared and expressed as a ratio, it is known as Rate. For example, a car travels at a speed of 100 kilometres per hour, then it means in one hour it covers 100 kilometres.

The formula of speed is

Speed =

## The correct answer is: 8: 2.7 am

### Step 1 of 2:

The distance travelled by both Julie and Jeanette is 6 km.

Average speed of Julie = 10 km/h

Time taken by Julie to cover 6 km = = = hours = 36 min

So, if Julie leaves at 8 a.m., she will finish her run at 8:36 am

Step 2 of 2:

Now, Average speed of Jeanette = 3 m/s = km/h = km/h

Extra time taken by Julie as compared to Jeanette to cover the distance = 36 - 33.3 = 2.7 min

So, Jeanette will leave 2.7 min late as compared to Julie to finish their run at the same time.

Final Answer:

Hence, Jeanette will leave at 8: 2.7 am.
