Challenge:
If you cross the Antarctic track from East to West, you will pass the six milestones A, B, C, D, E, and F(in this order). The distance from milestone A to C is 116 miles; the distance from D to E is 126 miles, and the distance from E to F is 53 miles.
Today Santa’s little helpers Yoda and Zeno have been testing their new sledges on the track. Both sledges were running the full distance at constant speed, and Yoda’s sledge was slower than Zeno’s sledge.
What is the distance between the two milestones B and E?
