Explanation

If Sue completed exactly one more lap than Rob, she ran 10 more miles than Rob. If Rob ran d miles, then Sue ran d + 10 miles. Rob and Sue began running at the same time, so they ran for the same amount of time. Let t represent the time they spent running. Fill out a chart for Rob and Sue, using the formula Distance = Rate × Time (D = RT):



D(miles)=R(miles per hour)\(\times\)T (hours)
Robd=6\(\times\)t
Sued+10=8\(\times\)t


There are two equations:

\(d = 6t d + 10 = 8t\)

Substitute 6t for d in the second equation and then solve for t:

\(6t + 10 = 8t\)

\(10 = 2t\)

\(5 = t\)

Hence option C is correct!

Difference in distance/Difference in speeds = 10/(8-6) = 5
