Amy’s speed is 200/38=5.26 m/s approx. Richard takes 8 seconds longer than Amy, so his speed is 200/46=4.35 m/s approx. Lucy is 6 seconds behind Richard so her speed is 200/52=3.85 m/s approx. (Rob is 3 seconds behind Lucy so his speed is 200/55=3.64 m/s approx.)

This table shows the finishing order:


Amy           5.26    38

Richard     4.35    46

Lucy          3.85    52 

Rob            3.64    55

Lucy took 52 seconds to run 200m. The other info here was not asked for but I believe it helps to complete the picture.
