A person has to cover the fixed distance through his horses.
There are five horses in the cart. They ran at the full potential for the 24 hrs continuously at the constant speed and then two of the horses ran away to some other direction. So, he reached the destination 48 hrs behind the schedule. If the 5 horses would have run 50 miles more, then the person would have been only 24 hrs late. Find the distance of the destination.

Is it 375 miles? If correct then I will explain. But it took me more than 5 minutes.
