I hate my students sometimes

Apparently, when two people are walking towards each other, the following equation holds:
(speed of person A, measured in kilometers) + (speed of person B, measured in kilometers per hour) = (speed of person B, measured in kilometers)

And the semester was going so well up until now. Sigh. Maybe I should splurge on Indian food to improve my mood before grading any more ...

I'm been scratching my head over this one ever since you posted it. I just don't get it. How do you measure speed in kilometers?

I had a teacher in high school that judged how well we did on exams by how many bottles of wine she consumed during the grading process.
