Determining the distance from each station from the earthquake epicenter is?

The Lag time for CIL is 10 seconds

The Lag time for DTX is 70 seconds

The Lag time for MFL is 110 seconds


The S wave arrives at each station at

CIL: 3:49.7

DTX: 3:50.8

MFL: 4:52.30


The P waves travel 100km in 16.39 seconds

The S waves travel 100km in 24.39 seconds


The Lag time at 100km is 8 seconds


So what is the distance of each station (CIL, DTX, and MFL) from the epicenter??
