The front of the cycling peloton travels at an average speed of 48 km/h. The cyclist with the green T-shirt lost 5 minutes when he fell. What speed must he drive if he wants to reach the front of the peloton in twenty minutes? Possible?

Correct answer:

v2 =  60 km/h

Step-by-step explanation:

v1=48 km/h t1=5 min h=5:60  h=0.08333 h t2=20 min h=20:60  h=0.33333 h  s1=s2  v1 (t1+t2)=v2 t2 48 (0.083333333333333+0.33333333333333)=v2 0.33333333333333  0.333333v2=20  v2=0.3333333320=60  v2=60=60 km/h
