Official Solution:

If an athlete ran the first half of a 200-meter race in 10 seconds and the second half in 12 seconds, by how much was his average speed over the first half larger than that over the second?

A. 2.0 kmh
B. 3.0 kmh
C. 3.6 kmh
D. 6.0 kmh
E. 7.2 kmh

The runner's average speed over the first 100 meters was 10 m/s or \(3600*\frac{10}{1000} = 36\) kmh. The runner's average speed over the second 100 meters was \(\frac{100}{12}\) m/s or \(3600*\frac{100}{12*1000} = 30\) kmh. The difference is 6 kmh.

Answer: D

I don't like how you don't post the conversion formulas. On the test the formulas are provided thus your questions without them are unrealistic and unnecessarily difficult.

This type of questions are called conversion problems and they never provide with any formula.

Hi...
You have to convert m into km and sec into h...
So 10m/s
1m= 1/1000 km ..... 10m=10/1000
1hour=60minutes..
And 1minute=60sec, so 1h =60*60 sec=3600sec
Therefore 1sec=1/3600 h...
Substitute in 10m/s....
(10/1000)/(1/3600)=3600*10/1000 kmph..
