How many trains? (Posted on 2013-07-12) Difficulty: 2 of 5
Two travelers set out at the same time to travel opposite ways round a circular railway. Trains start each way every fifteen minutes: on the hour, fifteen minutes past, half past, and forty-five minutes past. Clockwise trains take two hours for the journey, counterclockwise trains take three hours.

Including trains seen at the starting point and the ones they are traveling on, how many trains did each traveler see on his journey?
