In a race of 4800 meters run on a circular track of 400 meters length, the ratio of the speed of the two athletes is 3 : 5. If they run in the opposite directions, how many times do they meet in the entire race?

A. 11
B. 13
C. 15
D. 17
E. 19


Let A's speed be 5 and B's speed be 3 since they are moving in opposite directions, relative speed 5+3=8
Relative speed= 8 , so first time they meet \(\frac{400}{8}\) = 50 seconds.
In 50 Seconds A moves 250 m
or in every 250 meters A will meet B once .
Hence in 4800 meters A will meet B \(\frac{4800}{250}= 19.2\) times or 19 times.
