The graph above shows the positions of Paul and
Mark during a race. Paul and Mark each ran at a
constant rate, and Mark was given a head start to
shorten the distance he needed to run. Paul finished
the race in 6 seconds, and Mark finished the race in
10 seconds. According to the graph, Mark was given
a head start of how many yards?
$$\begin{array}{l}{\text { A) } 3} \\ {\text { B) } 12} \\ {\text { C) } 18} \\ {\text { D) } 24}\end{array}$$

So for this one, if we're looking at the amount of yards on Mark was given a head start by, well, we have to think about whether their starting point. So let's find Mark's starting point too deep. And then Paul starting point. Okay. Well, Mark starting point is just gonna be wherever he started within the distance, which is zero. And then Paul, starting point is wherever he started in the distance went with time zero, which is going to be between twelve and twenty four, which is exactly, uh, eighteen. So then we know if we do eighteen minus zero to find the difference, then weaken eighteen. So that's gonna be C. So seize our correct answer here.
