A son and his father take a daily walk up a hill. It is 1.5 km to the top of the hill. As the father gets older he can only walk half the speed of his son. So they start together but the father trails his son. The father reaches the halfway point when the son is at the top. The father continues to walk up as the son begins to walk down. When they meet the father turns around and walks back down the hill with his son. How far does the father walk?
