its between C or E, but I am going with E, because as BG mentioned, we dont know what those relative speeds were, and without that info we cannot calculate a definite time.

E. We need speed of one of the cyclists. Their relative constant speeds aren't enought to solve for time.

oa is E

n=speed of tony
m=speed of mary

s=d/t

abs(d/m-d/n) = d(n-m)/mn

I. dont know what m, n are

II. dont know what m,n or d are

both. dont know what m, n are.

1) The distance between home and school is 200 miles
2) Jim bikes 10 miles per hour faster than Tony

E simple reasoning
1)insuf cause we don't know distance between (which )home and school is 200 miles
2) Jim bikes 10 miles per hour faster than Tony[/quote]Insuff cause we don't know whats Tony's speed
Hence E

e becuse we dont know either person's rate (necessary for solving the eqquation) or at least a ratio between their rates so we can respond with a ratio (ie m=1/2t)

kind of an easy one, no?

Yurik79, it can be inferred from the question stem that both homes are 200m from the school (I hope!!)
