Wed, 25 Jan 2012 02:15:55 +0000http://theserver.uark.edu/~strauss/?p=45#comment-949I only ask the question because I brought up a similar question with my Calculus 1 with Analytic class involving an insect that flies between two approaching trains until they collide.
[spoiler] Wolfram MathWorld has an article that discusses the distance = rate * time solution as well as the infinite summation for the version of the problem they have. I think I remember the definition of area being given as an infinite limit of summation, which could also be expressed with an integral. http://mathworld.wolfram.com/TwoTrainsPuzzle.html [/spoiler]
