Walking While Tossing At The Lodge Des Peres, MO

Walking While Tossing At The Lodge Des Peres, MO*

You are exercising your legs while relaxing your shoulders on this track. As you walk you consider some questions such as:

STARTING POINT 1. You notice that a jogger passes you at the starting point on the track each time you make one lap.

How fast is this jogger going compared to your rate?


STARTING POINT 2. Some walkers are chatting and you pass them every time you go around twice on the track, that is, after you make two complete laps you pass them once.

How fast are the chatters moving compared to your rate?

STARTING POINT 3. Later the chatters change their speed and you pass them after one and one fourth laps. Assume that you did not change your speed.

How fast are the chatters moving compared to your rate now?
