2 persons are to run a race, but 1 can run 12 meters per second, whereas the other can run 8 meters per second. If the slower runner has a 50-meter head start, how long with it be before the faster runner catches the slower runner?

It will be 4.166 or 4.17 secs before the fast runner catches up to the slow runner.  All you need to do is divide 50m by 12m and you'll get the amount of time it takes.
