A to B (Posted on 2004-03-10) Difficulty: 2 of 5
You need to go from point A to point B, and then back to point A. Points A and B are 20 miles apart. You go to point B at a constant speed of 15 miles per hour. If you want your overall speed to be 30 miles per hour, how fast would you have to go from point B back to point A?

man you are brilliant
hats off to you
i could jus simply say that at 15 miles an hour the distance of 20 miles will be covered in an hour and 20 min
whereas to gain a speed of 30 miles an hour over a distance of 40 miles (20+20) we need an hour and 20 min so even at the speed of light its not possible
i agree with your ans on infinity
thank you
