Moe, Larry, and Curly were trying to figure out who among them was the fastest, and by how much. They decide to settle this by a series of 2-man 100-meter races. In the first race, Moe beats Larry by exactly 10 meters. (That is to say, when Moe crosses the finish line, Larry is 10 meters behind him.) In the second race, Larry beats Curly by exactly 10 meters.

If they run at the exact same speeds as they did in their previous races (and their speed is constant over the entire course of the race), by what distance should Moe beat Curly when they race?
