Tristan and his friend Joe are playing a game of catch. They are fifty feet apart from each other and tossing the ball back and forth at approximately seventy-five feet per second. Two thirds of a second elapse between each of the throws of the ball and the corresponding catch. During that time the ball travels one hundred and sixty seven feet. How is this possible?
Ok, so my first attempt at a lateral thinking problem was a bit of a disaster. Konrad and Jason both were not happy with it and I am trying to figure out a way to re-work it so that the problem is not trying to figure out what the heck I am thinking!
Apparently since I want to publish I need to hold off on posting answers here for copy write reasons. So I will post the answers on a separate site and use comments here as a way to discuss the problems.
