I have been trying to work this sum out for some time now, But I cant get a proper answer.
Heres the sum, my answer can be found below
A biathalon even involves running and cycling. Kim can cycle 30km/h faster than she can run. If Kim spends 48 minutes running and a third as much time again cycling in an event that covers a total distance of 60 km, how fast can she run?
Here is my answer:
Running speed =
cycling speed =
This is wrong because the book says the answer is 15 km/h
What am I doing wrong here?
