Agents J and K work in a long hallway with 4000 equally-spaced, consecutive offices. The agents decide to walk toward each other so they can meet and have lunch together. Agent J has recently been relocated from office 2013 to office 1. His former office neighbor, agent K, is still in office 2014. Assuming that Agent J can walk at a rate of 25 offices per minute, and Agent K walks at 36 offices per minute, what office will they meet at if they leave at the same time?
