It takes Tom 5 minutes to reach the slide from the sandbox. It takes Sara only 3 minutes to travel the same distance. If they both leave the sandbox at the same time and travel back and fourth between the sandbox and the slide, when will they first meet at the sandbox again? When will they meet at the slide?
Move the Slider to find the answer.
