Solution for Bumblebee puzzle Incorrect
The Solution given by Michael is incorrect. Since the trains are travelling in opposite direction they will meet after half an hour instead of one hour. so the distance travelled by the bee is 500 miles.
The problem states that the tunnel is 200 miles long.
I messed up! The solutions right..
Of course, if you take the line that distance travelled = distance between starting point and ending point, then the answer is 100 miles +/- the length of the train...
