A Contest: Math Problem (CLOSED)

If you win this contest then I will add you to my BFF blog. Editor, Athur, whatever!

if two trains are going to crash at 100mph and the train track is 700miles and a bumble bee is at the front of one train and going to the other at 150mph and the bee goes back and forth from train to train. How far will the bee fly before the trains crash?

Heres a hint on how to solve the equations:

700/(100*?)=? Total Time Trains Take To Crash

3.5*?=? Distnace the bee will fly.

With these hints the equation is fairley easy!…..At least if your smart!(No offence)

YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED TO USE GOOGLE BECAUSE I WILL ASK YOU TO EXPLAIN YOUR ANSWER!!! IF YOU USE GOOGLE YOU ARE DISQUALIFIED!!!!!

That includes any other search engine,answer website, or parent/gardian help. HAVE FUN THINKING!!!

My freind Skittlepony1 solved the problem. Heres how she solved it heres what she said:

hmm I wrote it on a piece of paper!!!!ok I think this is it!!and I explained it the best I can(is suck at explaining things)

since the total time is 700/(100*2)=3.5 hour and since its that time the bee has to crash 525 miles since you just take the 3.5 from the time then since other train crashed 150mph you take both of them and do 3.5*150 wich is 525!!!
WINNER!!!

So she will be added soon!! YAY!! I’m not alone anymore!!!
