Question

Alexia, Benito, and Carmen won a team art competition at their local park. As
part of their prize, they can paint the 5 km (5000 m) paved path through the
park any way they like.
They decided Alexia will paint the first 70 m, then Benito will paint the next
15 m, then Carmen will paint the next 35 m. They will keep repeating this
pattern until they reach the end of the 5 km path.
What percentage of the path will each person paint?

Alexa: 58.8%

Benito: 12.5%

Carmen: 28.7%

Step-by-step explanation:

(70m + 15m + 35m)x=5000

x=41.67 times

41x120m=4920m, leaving 80 m which Alexa and Benito got an extra time.

Alexa painted 42 times

Benito painted 41.67 times

Carmen painted 41 times

Alexa: 42x70m=2940m, 2940/5000=58.8%

Benito: 41.67x15m=625m, 625/5000=12.5%

Carmen: 41x35m=1435m, 1435=/5000=28.7%
