```										After 2s the thief would be at a distance of 50m fromthe police car.We shall consider this to be t=0.
let after a time t the distance be max.
then the distance between the check post and the thief would be 50+25t.......(i)
the police car would be at a distance of 2.5t^2from the check post...........(ii)
then the distance between them would be x=50+25t-2.5t^2
this would be max when dx/dt=0
which implies dx/dt=25-5t=0
therefore t=5s.hence x=50+125-62.5=112.5(ans)
