You do have the correct problem.  The error occurs when the solution uses 10 kilometers as the added distance, when in fact the added distance is .01 kilometers.

I have a problem with the solution!  When the solution is stated they subtract formulas, but the original formula is in kilometers and the "added" measurement is in meters.  Instead of 10, shouldn't it read .01.
