The policeman will get the theif in 21 minutes.
you have to increase the speed of the policeman by 10m/min every minute.
i made a table that conists of one column for time and the other two for policeman and the theif.As the speed of the policeman increased,he was able to catch the theif when his speed was 208m/min.
hope it helps. :)
