Hello, I was doing the chapter review and a few problems gave me trouble. I forgot this is the wrong forum, err, please move it, im sorry.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

1.) Runner A is initially 4.0 mi west of a flagpole and is running with a constant velocity of 6.0 mi/h due east. Runner B is initially 3.0 mi east of the flagpole and is running with a constant velocity of 5.0 mi/h due west. How far are the runners from the flagpole when they meet.

2.)A tortoise can run with a speed of .10m/s and a hare can run 20 times as fast. In a race, they both start at the same time, but the hair stops to rest for 2.0 mintures. The tortoise wins by 20 cm. a. How long does the race take? b. What is the length of the race?

I'm sure i'll have more by the end of tonight . If you can work these out, I would really appreciate it. Thanks!
