I could not solve this due to my lack of understanding of nomenclature in the question. I could not understand what \(6\pi\) is.

Is it simply 6<pi>? or is it like square of six <pi>?

Thanks.


It's \(6\pi\), so 6 multiplied by pi.

Sorry Bunuel, but I think this was a problem with my browser. I am sure there is a way in which pi can be depicted by using the forward slash keys. I pasted this URL in a different browser and my problem was solved! Thanks for the reply!

LCM of (L/a, ;L/b) is answer. L- Length of track; a- speed of car A, b- speed of car B

LCM (12pi/6pi, 12pi/8pi) = LCM (2, 1.5) = 6 (ANSWER)

Didn't think about the concept of relative speed. Didn't remember it, so I solved this in another way.

We know the length of the track is 12pi and we also know the average speed of both A and B.
So, in order for them to have ran a complete lap, the (average speed * time) / length of the track (as in, total distance) should be an integer, though naturally not the same for both of them.

The lowest number in the options provided is 6 hours, hence D is our answer.
