## Homework Statement

A hare and tortoise compete in a race over a course of 3.70km long. The tortoise crawls straight and steadily at its max speed of .900m/s toward the finish line. The hare runs at its max speed of 1.00m/s toward the goal for .800 km and then stops to taunt the tortoise. Assume that, when moving, both animals move steadily at their respective max speed.

## Homework Equations

How close to the goal can the hare let the tortoise approach before resuming the race, which tortoise wins in a photo finish?

## The Attempt at a Solution

I drew the picture but couldnt get anywhere. I thought that i would have to use a kinematic equation but not all the givens are given....
