Two trains are on same track and they are coming toward each other. The speed of first train is 50 KMs/h and the speed of second train is 70 KMs/h. A bee starts flying between the trains when the distance between two trains is 100 KMs. The bee first flies from first train to second train. Once it reaches the second train, it immediately flies back to the second train … and so on until trains collide. The speed of bee is 40 KMs/h. Calculate the total distance traveled by the bee?

The Bee cant make it as:
1. Both Trains have higher speed than the bee
2. Trains collide after 100KMs/(50 KMs/h+70KMs/h)=50 mins, the bee travels only 40*50/60=33.3 KMs by that time
