Girl, Boy and Dog Puzzle - Solution

The Puzzle:

Girl, Boy and Dog
A girl, a boy, and a dog start walking down a road.

They start at the same time, from the same point, in the same direction.

The boy walks at 5 km/h, the girl at 6 km/h.

The dog runs from boy to girl and back again with a constant speed of 10 km/h. The dog does not slow down on the turn.

How far does the dog travel in 1 hour?

Our Solution:

10km. Because the dog's speed is 10 km/h.

Where the boy and girl are has no effect on answering this puzzle.

But if you asked WHERE the dog is after 1 hour ... that would be a very hard question to answer!
