    Each of its threads will be more than 1200 km long. Finish the underwater part of the construction (both threads) promise until the end of 2019.

    How many kilometers of the gas pipeline have already been laid? All construction materials back in 2016 were collected, and today construction is underway: 4 km per day.

    1). 1200 x 2 - 978 = 1422 (km left to build)
    2). 1422: 4 = 356 (it will take days to lay the pipes)
    3). 09.04.2019/356/31.03.2020 + XNUMX days = at best XNUMX/XNUMX/XNUMX (end of installation)

      4 km per day for one thread or two at once?
