Cyclists

Cyclist who rides at an average speed 16 km/h travels trip distance 10 min before the cyclist who rides at an average speed 11 km/h.

What is the length of this cyclist trip(distance in km)?

Result

s =  5.87 km

Solution: 16*(60t-10)=11*t*60
s = 11 t

300t = 160
s-11t = 0

s = 8815 ≈ 5.866667
t = 815 ≈ 0.533333
