when I did this problem, I divided half of the total distance (10 m) by 1.3 m/s because I thought that if the owners were going to meet each other they would each travel 5 m. the way this problem is worked out, though, the owners' speeds are combined and then divided by the total distance. I got the right answer, but I was wondering if anyone knew if my way could also be correct or if I just got lucky. Thanks-

What velocity did the dog travel during this time?
