Brain challenge from 2/4/10 show.

Say Usain Bolt, Kelly and Perry were running a 100 meter dash race.
Suppose further that each ran at a uniform speed the whole race
If Usain beat Kelly by 10 meters and Kelly beat Perry by 10 meters, by how much did Usain beat Perry?

    assume, usain did 100m in 10s. his speed must be 10m/s. In that time , kelly did 90m. her speed must have been 9m/s. Then kelly must have done 100m in 11.1s @ 9m/s
    perry did 90m in 11.1s
    his speed will be 8.1m/s. perry must have done 81m in 10s when usain did 100m.
    Then , usain must have been 19m ahead of perry!

    Perry is this correct,lol
