## Homework Statement

A tortoise can run with a speed of 0.10 m/s, and a hare can run 20 times as fast. In a race, they both start at the same time, but the hare stops to rest for 5.0 minutes. The tortoise wins by a shell (40 cm).

(a) How long does the race take? (s)

(b) What is the length of the race? (m)

## Homework Equations

d= distance

s= speed

t= time

subscripts;

h=hare

t=tortoise

d

_{h}=s

_{h}x t

_{h}

d

_{t}=s

_{t}x t

_{t}

## The Attempt at a Solution

i have these two equations:

d

_{t}-0.40=(20)(0.10)(t-300)

d=0.10t

how do i set them equal to each other

or how do i solve them? i have no clue...
