Two friends plan to meet. They both own a bike and hops on to their respective bikes and kick start the journey together deciding to meet halfway. Each of them is riding at 6 MPH and their houses are 36 miles apart from each other. One of them has a dog who also begins running at that very instant. The dog keeps running back and forth at 18 MPH from one friend to another till they meet at the half way.

  2. How can it be 54 minutes
    the dog will travel 27 miles in 90 minutes and the friend will cover 9 miles the dog will return to his master which will take 45 minutes minutes to cover the 18 miles.

    Irrespective of the distance the dog will go to and fro in 180 minutes the same time the friends take to reach midway.

  3. The dog runs for 36/(2x6) = 3 hours
    3 x 18 = 54 miles
