The cycling race was run at an average speed of 45 km/h. One cyclist lost with defect 8 minutes. How long and far must he go at speed 51 km/h to catch the peloton again?

Correct answer:

t =  60 min
s =  51 km

Step-by-step explanation:

s1=s2=s v1(t+8)=v2t v1t+8v1=v2t  t=8v2v1v1=8514545=60 min
s=v2t=5160/60=51 km
