A cheetah can run at a maximum speed

94.4 km/h and a gazelle can run at a max-

imum speed of 79.2 km/h.

If both animals are running at full speed,

with the gazelle 66 m ahead, how long before

the cheetah catches its prey?

    94.4 km/h = 94.4 /3.6 = 26.2 m/s

    79.2 km/h = 22 m/s

    26.2t=22t+66

    solve for t , seconds

    It won't. Cheetahs can maintain top speed for only a short distance. Gazelles can maintain their top speed for a mile or so. That's why the saluki (AKA Gazelle Hound) was the first dog bred. Over a three-mile course, no animal can outrun one.

    Of course, if the question came in math class, you have to pretend to be as ignorant as your teacher about cheetahs and gazelles..
