Two dogs, each traveling at 10 ft/sec, run toward each other from 500 feet apart. As they run, a flea flies from the nose of one dog to the nose of the other at 25 ft/sec. The flea flies between the dogs in this manner until it is crush when the dogs collide. How far did the flea fly?



Rather than thinking about distance, think about time. How long did the flea fly before the crash?
