Let us locate the mansions according to scheme below
1--------2-------3---------4
distance between 1 and 2 is 60 kms
distance between 2 and 4 is 40 kms
distance between 2 and 3 is X+10 kms
distance between 3 and 4 is X
Then,
X + 10 + X = 40 , X = 15
Total distance between 1 and 4 is 60 + 15 = 75 Kms
