Problem: 
When Andrew races Peter in the 100 meter dash, Andrew crosses the finish line
when Peter is still 10 meters behind him. To make things fairer, Andrew
volunteers to start ten meters behind Peter at the beginning of the race. If
both brothers run the same as they did when starting at the same position who
should win and why?

Solution: 
Andrew will win because when Peter reaches the 90meter mark Andrew will have
reached it as well (because it is 100 meters from the start of his track). The
last ten meters will be traversed faster by Andrew because he is faster.
