A Classic Puzzle by Lewis Carroll



Two travelers spend from 3 o'clock till 9 in walking along a level road, up a hill, and back home again: their pace on the level being 4 miles an hour, up hill 3, and down hill 6.

Find the distance walked: also (within half an hour) the time of reaching the top of the hill.
