Can you help? Help me solve this problem:
Two drivers decided to have a cross-country race. Driver A would go 100 mph, but driver B could only go 50 mph, so he was given a 100 mile head start. While A went that 100 miles, B had gone 50 miles. When A went that 50 miles, B had gone 25 miles. When A went that 25 miles, B had gone 12 ˝ miles. Carry on like this and A would never pass B.
I know this is wrong, because in less than 3 hours A would have passed B; but,where is the error in my first calculation?
Please email me your explanation to this problem to put my mind at rest.
