Little Suzy has a tricycle (you know, with three wheels). She wants to travel 1 mile with the tricycle, but she wants to spare her tyres (you know the price on tricycle tyres just keep going up). She is taking 2 spare tyres.
Assume she knows when to exchange wheels so that each of them travels an equal distance. How far does each wheel travel at the end of one mile? How did she exchange the wheels?
Being a newcomer to this puzzle-web I am not accustomed to all the tricks and innuendos carefully camouflaged in every nook and cranny of the text.
But put some blame on lazy Suzanne: all she knows
is .." to exchange wheels so that each of them travels an equal distance." T R A V E L S !!!
So the question is moot- she can do it any way she wants- the hardware travels with her, mounted or not. -And there is nothing to solve.
Am I right or am I???
