From equation 1, B = 2A

From equation 2, D = 4A

From equation 3, E = 5A

Therefore

B + D + E = 11A

Correct answer – 11 (letter K). The letters represent their position in an alphabet. A = 1, B = 2, C = 3, D = 4, E = 5,

Two people – Mick and Goof, 100 meters apart, start walking towards each other with constant speeds of 2m/s. At the same time Mick’s dog starts running back and fourth between them with constant speed of 6m/s until Mick and Goof meet. How much distance does the dog cover in total?

Mick and Goof will meet at the 50m half way point.
This will take them 25 secs.

In this time the dog will cover 25 x 6 = 150 metres.

Correct as usual RMJ

SOLUTION
Mick and Goof will meet after 100/(2 + 2) = 25 seconds. Therefore the dog will run for 25 seconds and will cover 6 x 25 = 150 meters in total.

Rearrange the letters of

‘ARTIST EYES SHOPLIFTER’

to give a well-known saying meaning that we do not learn from experience.

What is it?

One more .

A car covers an outward journey at 66 mph.

It returns, over exactly the same distance, at 33 mph.

What is the car's average speed over the entire journey?

My logic is ;-

If one leg of the journey is L long, then time taken for outward journey is L/66 .

Time for return journey is L/33.

The total journey is 2L

2L (L/66 + L/33) = ?

Solve for ‘L’   LOL  Embarassed   Very Happy

I'll keep at it.

Put the dividing sign between 2L and the bracket then you can finish it.
