Three drivers

Three driversdriving the same direction found that they have same amounth of gasoline. The first is enough to go 6 km, 4 km second and third 3km. Gasoline they divided so all three just drove to the nearest petrol station. How many km away was a petrol station?

Result

x =  4 km

Solution:


x*(1/6+1/4+1/3)=1+1+1

9x = 36

x = 4

Calculated by our simple equation calculator.
