A : B :C = 100:90:72
∴      B:C = 90/72    =(90* 100/90)/(72*100/90) = 100/80  = (100:80)
∴  B can give C 20 m.

Explanation

A: B :C = 100: 90:87 
  ∴ B/C = 90/87 = 90*2/87*2  = 180/174
Thus,  while B covers 180m , C covers 174 m.
∴  B beats C by 6m.

A :B:C =  200: 169: 182
 ∴      C/B = (182*350/182)/ (169*350/182) =  350/325 
Thus  when C covers  350m,  B covers 325m.
∴ C beats B by 25 m .
