The Hare And The Tortoise : Solution


The diameter of the circular track has no bearing on the problem. When they meet, the hare has gone 1/6 of the way while the tortoise traveled 17/24. The tortoise has therefore been moving 17/4 times as fast as the hare. The hare has 5/6 of the distance yet to go as compared to 1/6 for the tortoise, so the hare must go five times faster than the tortoise, or 85/4 times faster than he went before.
