Circular Jogging Track Problem 3 (Posted on 2006-04-14) Difficulty: 4 of 5
Continuing with the original problem. Three friends A B & C regularly jog in circular jogging track every morning. The track is 1000 m in circumference.

A takes 8 mins to complete one lap, B takes 10 mins & 40 secs & C takes 12 mins. They all start from a point on the track but C decides to run in the opposite direction from the same point.

As they set out B suddenly has cramps (not at the starting point) and starts walking in the same direction as before. His walking speed takes him 32 mins to complete a lap. He decides to continue walking till they all meet. At what point should he have cramps such that they all meet at any point in the fastest time?
