How to solve problems related to races?

Races and Games, as a part of applied mathematics, class XII. A simple trick to solve problems related to races is shown in this post.

Feel free, first join my YouTube channelFacebook group for applied maths students, subscribe to this website, and get a monthly collated mailer.

If A gives B a start of x meters. It means B covers less distance than A.

For example, A = 100 metres then B = (100 -x) metres

How to attempt questions based on races and games?

Assume constant speed, which means if A is running 10metres/seconds and B is running 9 meters/second. Then these speeds are the same throughout the race. 

For example, in a 1000 meters race, A defeats B by 200 meters and B defeats C by 100 meters. In the same race by how many meters will A defeat C?
