# Both A and B in the 400-meter circular track practice running, both starting at the same time, these

If you run the same direction, then they met over 200 sec. If turning its back running, then they met over 40 seconds, find A and B two speed.

must use a dollar linear equation solution! Thanks!

because they do not know whether it was a soon as i get better soon set up in
: A speed X m / s

by: If his back turned to run, then they had 40 seconds to meet

were: B Speed (400 ÷ 40-X) m / s

by: If you run the same direction, then they had met

200 seconds were: X-(400 ÷ 40-X) = 400 ÷ 200

solution too: x = 6 (400 ÷ 40-x) = 4

set up a speed of x, then the B's speed 400/40-x

If it is a fast, equation

[x-(400/40-x) ] * 200 = 400

B if it is fast, equation

[(400/40-x)-x] * 200 = 400

set up a speed of x, then set up a speed of x, then the B's speed 400/40-x

If it is a fast, equation

[x-(4 B if it is fast, equation 00/40-x)] * 200 = 400
