one friend is riding his bicycle at the speed of 10m/sec and another friend is riding the bicycle from the opposite direction on same way at same speed and bug is in the middle.what is the distance the bug actually flies before squished.

Simple. How long does it fly in the air? time= distance/combinedspeed= distance/20

You didn't say the distance, but put that in, and figure time.

Now how far does the bug fly? distance=speedbug*timeflying

you didn't put the speed of the bug in the problem either.
