A butterfly flies back and forth from one to the other at 6 miles per hour, without stopping until the cyclists meet. How far does the butterfly fly?</font face=georgia>

    Q2) <font face="Georgia">There's a small restaurant nearby that charges unusual prices. Soup is 71 cents, a sandwich is 81 cents, and meatloaf is 73 cents. Using the same system, how much will tea cost?</font face=georgia>
