A fly is flying between two trains, each travelling towards each other on the same track at 60 km/h. The fly reaches one engine, reverses itself immediately, and flies back to the other engine, repeating the process each time. The fly is flying at 90 km/h. If the fly flies 180 km before the trains meet, how far apart were the trains initially?

For Solution SCROLL DOWN...


Initially, the trains were 240 km apart.

The fly is flying at the speed of 90 km/h and covers 180 km. Hence, the fly flies for 2 hours after trains started. It's obvious that trains met 2 hours after they started travelling towards each other. Also, trains were travelling at the speed of 60 km/h. So, each train traveled 120 km before they met. Hence, the trains were 240 km apart initially.
