On a working escalator, one man walking down it took 50 steps. Another man, walking three times faster, took 75 steps.
How many steps would each man take going down the same escalator during a power outage?
Given the many variables: direction of escalators, stride length, definition of "three times faster" (have i missed any?) I'm thinking there are more solutions (or solution sets) waiting to be found...
