One Can Only Hope

How I wished that our mathematics problems were as interesting as this:

The distance from Point A to B is 100km. If a cyclist starts cycling from Point A at a constant speed of 20km/h and a car moves from Point B at the constant speed of 80km/h, how long will it take for the car to run over the cyclist?
Give your answer in minutes.




Just in case you were wondering, the answer is 60 minutes.

Wrong buddy.!! the answer is 0.1 minutes aka 6 seconds..

6 seconds is all the car need to run over the cyclist and left him dead..

from contact point in front, then front wheels, back wheels and under the exos pipe..

6 seconds is all needed :)

Should I apply vector then pembezaan or what? All rusty. Oh wait, it's an IQ question, so it isn't supposed to make sense.

pluboy: Extra marks for that answer! :)

william: It's not an IQ question! See, pluboy figured it out! (no offense to pluboy's intellingence of coz)

.... Isn't it a physics question where u have the formula for sesaran, velocity or something like that? -_- Last time I did physics was on form 5...

Lol... what a funny question.

s=vt
vt(cyclist)+vt(car)=100
20t+80t=100
100t=100
t=1 hour
=60 mins
