ZENO'S PARADOX



COPING WITH MATH ANXIETY




CONTENT SUITABLE FOR ALL
  Platonic Realms Math Store Banner
     
   
Milton the Miner loaded up his mule one fine Wednesday morning, with silver ore dug from his mining claim high up in a lonely canyon, and headed down to town. The mule was obstinate and the load heavy, so he didn't get into town until late.
The next morning he sold his ore at the assay office, loaded the mule with freshly bought victuals and supplies, and headed back up the same trail to his claim. The mule, though still laden, was eager to get back to its now familiar home and trotted along happily, so that Milton was snug in his blanket by the fire come sundown.
Today's challenge: Prove that there is exactly one spot on the trail that Milton and his mule passed at the same time on both Wednesday and Thursday.
