Michael walks at the rate of 5 feet per second on a long straight path.

Trash pails are located every 200 feet along the path. A garbage truck travels at 10 feet per second in the same direction as Michael and stops for 30 seconds at each pail. As Michael passes a pail, he notices the truck ahead of him just leaving the next pail. How many times will Michael and the truck meet?

I am clueless on this one. (Crying)

Vicky.

Thanks.
