Area of a Race

Geometry Level 2

Marco and Jake start at points A and B respectively on the starting-line for a race.

In the first 5 seconds of the race, Marco sprints 50 meters straight away from the start-line to point C and Jake sprints 30 meters, parallel to Marco's path, to point D.

In the second 5 seconds of the race, Marco sprints another 50 meters straight away from the start-line to point E and Jake sprints another 30 meters, parallel to Marco's path, to point F.
