- Homework Statement
- Three tourists have a bicycle, they must reach the tourist center in the shortest possible time (the time is counted until the last tourist arrives in the center). The bicycle can only carry two people and so the third tourist should go on foot. The cyclist leaves another tourist on the way and returns to pick up what was on foot. Walking speed is v_1 and biking is v_2 . What is the average speed of tourists for v_1 and v_2 ?

- Relevant Equations
- I thought like this: y is the distance traveled by A with velocity Vb over a time interval ∆t1, ie y = Vb.∆t2;
