i don't think that's right.....

what's that 625 on the first line by the way?

\[S=\frac{ d }{ t }\]

i doubt this is that simple

8(1253-x)=1000
x=1128 seconds
Looks correct to me.

1253 - x?

you do know i asked how long Achilles slept and not how long Achilles was running...right?

x is the time for which Achilles sleeps......
So, 1253-x gives how long he ran.

hmm then that's not right

WHY???

like i said...it's not simple

the question is...what's the right solution...

@lgbasallote which part Do u think...i made a Mistake...

why are you asking me? i'm the asker here...you tell me....

because you think you're right?

Toto took 1250s To cover 1000m.... right.?

no need to explain to me your solution..i get it

..it's the book that says it's wrong..not me

I will be deleting anything I find nasty here. Thanks.

Keep in mind. Discussion is an awesome tool in learning. :)

*
:P

though no one asked,,but i guess yahoo is right..

i suppose one needs to get the speeds first...

me too i dont see a mistake in the solution

whats the ans in the book ?

and speeds are already given right ?

ahh i think i get what the question is asking

I got 1128. using a much more complex method.

hmm maybe I can get an idea from that complex method

this is a headscratcher

so your answer is 1128 too huh

what if the 3 seconds doesn't mean that Achilles finished 3 seconds later?

i meant 3 seconds can mean that Achilles' running time is 3 more than the tortoise's

No. It doesn't mean that here.

125/2+nap+125/2 =1253

125+nap=1253

hmm i'll think about this. this is supposedly a tricky question
