A beats B by 11 meters. When B completes the 11 meters, there is a lead of 80 meters to C
So, C must have travelled only 90 - 80 = 10 meters
When B travels 11 meters, C travels only 10 meters
Ratio of distance travelled by second and third horse are11x and 10 x respectively
We know that the second horse beats the third horse by 80 meters.
So, Length of the track = Distance travelled by the second horse = 11 x 80 = 880 meters

The question is "In a race of three horses, the first beat the second by 11 metres and the third by 90 metres. If the second beat the third by 80 metres, what was the length, in metres, of the racecourse? [TITA] "

##### Hence, the answer is 880
