        You have two bicycles 200 miles apart. You also have a fly on one of the handle bars. The two bicycles start towards each other traveling at 50 mph. At the same time the fly starts flying towards the other bicycle, traveling at 75 mph. It flys to the other bicycle's handle bar and then flys back to the first bicycle's handle bar repeating until the bicycles come together. Assuming instantaneous start, stop and turnaround times how far has the fly traveled when the bicycles meet?

          Two cars are back bumper to back bumper. Both start driving and travel exactly 8 miles. They both turn left and travel 6 miles. How far apart are the two cars? (Remember, since they are facing in opposite directions, when they both turn

          left they travel in opposite directions)

              The fly; 150 miles

              The cars; 20 miles, as the crow flies.

                      the cars can be zero miles apart if their back bumpers are locked together and one car is traveling in reverse attached to the other car.....
