I'm sorry I can't provide more information. Due to the case that I'm only given this much, to begin with. Any idea how this question works?

Thanks.

Well.....assuming that they started from the same point at the same time......if they run the same way and Martin passes Beryl at the 200 m mark.....then  Martin must run 800 + 200  = 1000m for every 200 m  that Beryl runs.....In other words, Martin runs 5 times as fast as Beryl does

So......the next time they meet.......Beryl will have run 400 m while Martin will have run 2000 meters.....so they will meet at the 400 m  mark, i.e,  halfway round the track......
