Question: molly and keitany ran the 7 mile 1126 kilometers falmouth...

Question details

Molly and Keitany ran the 7 mile (11.26 kilometers) Falmouth Road Race. Molly ran at a constant pace of 3:05 per kilometer. Keitany ran every one-kilometer interval in exactly three minutes and seven seconds. For example, Keitany ran the one-kilometer distance from 4.57 kilometers to 5.57 kilometers in three minutes and seven seconds, and the one-kilometer distance from 10.1 kilometers to 11.1 kilometers in three minutes and seven seconds. At the end of the race, Keitany finished ahead of Molly. Explain how. Include a graph to help support your reasoning. Optional Challenge: Research suggests that humans could perhaps run up to 40 mph. With this information, is the above race humanly possible? Optional Neat Stuff: If you ran a race at an average pace of 3:07 per kilometer, did you run any single kilometer in exactly 3:07?
