Triathlon Time Challenge
Here's competition number two, and this time it's open to the whole world!! so you are competing against 6 billion people!!
Anyway. I wish to do a triathlon. It's a 200m swim, then a 10km bike, then a 5 km run all without stopping!!
My best times at the individual events are
200 swim : 4mins 34 seconds
10km bike : 16mins 32 seconds
5km run: 23mins 37 seconds
It takes me 10% longer to do the parts when I have to do them together, and there is a 30 second transition from swim to bike, and 30 second transition from bike to run
so the question is this:
What should be my finishing time??
A) 50 mins 20 seconds
B) 50 mins 11 seconds
C) 50 mins 34 seconds
D) 50 mins 25 seconds
E) another time, for you to specify
Post your answers and why you think that!
(in event of more than one correct answer/explanation, the name that would score the most in a game of scrabble will win)
