Milestone Muse (Posted on 2013-10-10) Difficulty: 3 of 5
Two cars leave simultaneously from points X and Y on the same road but in opposite directions. Their speeds are constant, and in the ratio 5 to 4 with the car leaving at X being the faster of the two.

The cars travel to and fro between X and Y. They meet for the second time at the 145th milestone and for the third time at the 201st milestone.

What are the respective milestones at X and Y?
