We are given that the first runner can complete a 750 m race in 2 minutes and 30 seconds or 150 seconds.
=> Speed of the first runner = 750 / 150 = 5 m / sec
We convert this speed to km/hr by multiplying it by 18/5.
=> Speed of the first runner = 18 km / hr
Also, we are given that the speed of the second runner is 17.95 km/hr.
Therefore, the first runner can beat the second runner
