You know...you really don't have to be so rude about it. I don't know any of you people here. But I think it's something to try to figure out the answers to these logic questions without someone name calling. Why can't you explain things without being so rude?



I'm not really sure who you are talking about, but if it was me, and I upset you, then I am VERY SORRY!!!.....


Wait,,,,,,

Hold on, I think I,,,,, ()




Ahhhh, There it is......

THE ONLY PERSON BEING RUDE, IS YOU!!! WE ARE JOKING AROUND WITH EACHOTHER WITH ABSOLUTELY NO EMOTION BEHIND ANYTHING WE ARE SAYING. YOU ARE RIGHT, YOU "DO NOT" KNOW ANY OF US YET ARE JUDGING OUR ACTIONS AS IF YOU DO.



Actually dude, you weren't really rude until you said this...

Cloud9ine was the rude one in what he said below:


Im a Moron. I can't believe I sat and did the math on this one before it hit me... LOL



no you're not.. The moron came and posted right after you!!



Just because someone didn't catch it right away doesn't make them a moron...

Well, this one is obvious. The train leaving New York will be closest. Totally obvious. Unless the one from Boston plowed right over the one from NY and ended up further down the tracks towards NY the NY train is closest.

Of course this assumes they are on the same track and crash head on.

IF they are on different tracks then we have to determine the exact moment of "encounter" and what their relationship to each other at that time is. The only way for the answer to be "neither is closer" would be if the front end of the Boston train to be aligned with the back end of the New York train. Any other point of "encounter" and one of them will be closer.

These problems are too simple.

Neither because if they "encounter", then they are at the same place but also the one that started out first may be ahead, because there is only one track

Insufficient information. An S shaped or other shaped track would put the New York train on the Boston side, and the rear of the Boston train would be closest to the New York side. The question is wrong. It should say straight track.
