Mind Teasers : The Hundred Number Puzzle

Difficulty Popularity

We can create number 100 by using all numbers, i.e.0123456789 and mathematical operators (+/-) in many ways.
Example
98 + 7 + 6 - 5 - 4 - 3 + 2 - 1 = 100

But if we add a condition that the use of the number 21 is the must. Then there are only a few solutions.

One of such solution is:
98 - 7 - 6 - 5 - 4 + 3 + 21 = 100

Can you tell any other solution?

There are three cars in a racing track. The track is made forming a perfect circle and is quite wide so that at one time, multiple cars can pass through it. The car which is leading is driving at 55 MPH and the slowest car is driving at 45 MPH. The car that is in middle of these two is driving in between the two speeds. For the time being you can say that the distance between the fastest car and the middle car is x miles and it is same between the middle car and the slowest car. Also, x is not equal to 0 or 1.

The car keeps running till the leading car catches up with the slowest car and then every car stops. Given the case, do you think that at any point, the distance between any two pairs will again become x miles?
