# If visiting neighbors resulted in gift bags

112 posts

Events A and B are traveling in the same direction on parallel updates. Event A is traveling at 60 mph and event B is traveling at 70 mph. Event A passes an update at 12:20 P.M. If Event B passes the same update at 12:32 P.M., at what time will event B catch up to event A?

I cant believe with all the nerds we have around here, no one took the time to answer this.

Yeah it would be good if they they replaced the money with gift bags.

I'll take that challenge

At the update, A has a 12minute, or 12 mile, lead on B.

B, which is travelling 10miles per hour faster than A, will take 1.2 hours to close this gap.

Or 1 hour and 12 minutes.

So, therefore, henceforth and ad infinitum, 01:44. AM.

And if that's correct, I've just proved myself to be a nerd... :oops:

My head is still spinning from them traveling on parallel lines with B going faster than A and yet A hit the update first. Hmm. In the voice of Christopher Walken it's a quandary that's what it is. But as you can tell by my pic I don't get paid to think.
