Doug won the race
Explanation-
The ratio of steps covered by me, Doug, and Anne is = 6:7:8

Since Distance covered in Me 21 steps = Distance covered by Doug 24 steps = Distance covered by Anne 28 steps

LCM (21, 24, 28) = 168

For a distance of 168 units, the ratio of the distance covered in each step is;
= 8 : 7 : 6
Therefore the ratio of speeds is;
= 8×6: 7×7: 6×8
= 48 : 49 : 48

Here, the speed of the Doug is more than the speed of me and Anne
Hence, Doug won the race

area is given by Area of Rectangle = Length of Rectangle*(sqrt((Diagonal of Rectangle^2)-(Length of Rectangle^2)))
so substituting we get area=4*(sqrt((25-16)))
area=4*(sqrt(9))
since area cannot be negative hence we take sqrt of 9 as 3 (as sqrt of 9 is 3 and -3 as well)
area=4*3=12m^2
