That is a scary looking ant, isn’t it? It is an aggressive type of trap-jaw ant from South America that has recently began spreading all across the Gulf Coast. Seeing this ant reminds me of my childhood. I loved to race ants to see which one was the fastest. Would you care to help me in my experiment?

Let’s say that I put two ants on a table., The ants are facing each other and are exactly one meter apart. If one ant moves forward at a constant speed of 0.5 millimeters per second, and the other ant moves forward at a constant speed of 0.75 millimeters per second, how many seconds would it take for the two ants to meet?
