    Two Scouts

    Two Scouts have to cover the same distance. The first scout, Albert, runs half the time and then walks the second half. The second scout, Bart, runs half the distance and then walks the second half. Neither one walks or runs faster than the other. Who gets there first?

    SInce we RUN faster than we walk, Bart will RUN half the distance in < half the total time and the 2nd half the distance will take longer. Since Albert runs HALF the time, over HALF the distance will be running, since he runs more he will get there sooner</font color=yellow></span hi>
