 Marching Messenger (Posted on 2002-07-05)
(This is from CTK exchange)

A column of soldiers is 25 miles long and they march 25 miles a day. One morning a messenger started at the rear of the column with a message for the guy up front. The messenger began to march and gave the message to the guy up front and then returned to his position by the end of the day. Assume that the messenger marched at the same rate of speed the whole time. How many miles did the messenger march?
