velocity * time = distance

If we divide both sides of the equation by velocity, we get:

time = distance/velocity

The racer who takes the least time to get to the finish line wins. For the turtle:

Time

_{T}= (100 feet)/(20 feet per minute) = 5 minutesFor the rabbit:

Time

_{R}= (50 feet)/(40 feet per minute) + (3 minutes rest) + (50 feet)/(40 feet per minute)Can you finish from here?

Time

_{R}= (50/40) +(3) + (50/40) = (100/40) + 3 = ??
