Races and Games Aptitude Concepts and Formulas
Points to Remember:
- The competitions of running, driving cars, riding on the horses or bicycles, and rowing boats, etc., are generally called races.
- The places like grounds, roads, rivers, lakes, etc., where races take place are called the race course.
- In any race, the number of participants can be 2 or more. The point from where the race starts is known as the starting point.
- The point at which the race ends is called the goal or winning post.
- If in a race all the participants reach the goal at the same time, the race is called dead heat. Therefore, dead heat is that type of race which ends in a draw, i.e., no one is winner or loser.
- Suppose A, and B are two contestants in a race. If before the start of the race, A is at the starting point and B is ahead of A by 14 meters, we say that A gives B, a start of 14 meters.
- In this case, to cover a race of 100 meters, A will have to cover 100 meters while B will have to cover only (100 - 14) = 86 meters.
- In a 100 m race, 'A can give B 14 m' or 'A can give B a start of 14 m' or 'A beats B by 14 m' means while A runs 100 m, B runs (100 - 14) = 86 m.
- A game of 200, means that the person among the participants who scores 200 points first is the winner'.
- If A scores 200 points while B scores only 160 points, we can say that A can give B 40 points.
