2.Tom and Jerry left their houses simultaneously to visit each other. Walking at UNIFORM speeds, they passed each other at a point 5 kilometers from Toms home without noticing. When they reached their respective destinations and found nobody home they turned around to go back, this time meeting each other at a point 3 km from Jerrys home.
