Jimmy and Dean were in a yacht race from Auckland to Suva, a distance of 1200km. Jimmy left port in Auckland two hours after Dean. He sailed at an average speed which was 2km/h faster than Dean and finished in Suva exactly one day before him
Given that the average speed is distance/time then find Dean's average speed during the yacht race.
I'm a bit confused ab out how to form the equation.
1200/x = 1200/(x+2) + 26
How come it becomes 26? I thought that the 2 hours head start was already covered by the 1200/x+2 ?
