In a relay race, the total distance is covered by multiple athletes through passing of the baton. Initially each player of a team A had to run an equal distance before passing on the baton but due to injury to two team players, each of the remaining players ran some extra distance each during race to compensate for the injured players.
1. John, a member of Team A, had to run 400m more than the 600m he was required to run earlier.
2.The total distance to be covered in the race was 3000m.
