The second checkpoint C is located at the midpoint between B and the end of the race D. The total race is 3 miles. How far apart are the 2 checkpoints? (Hint: There are 5280 feet in a mile.) a)9840 feet b)5280 feet c)4920 feet d)6000 feet

    (C) Assuming the race is a straight line, then the whole race is 3x5280=15840feet. 15840-6000=9840 is the distance from B to D 9840/2=4920 is the distance from B to C.
