Question description

Jane is walking her dog, Spot. She sees her friend, Dick, walking toward her along the same long, straight road. Both Dick and Jane are walking at 3 mph. When Dick and Jane are 600 feet apart, Spot runs from Dick to Jane, turns and runs back to Dick, and then back and forth between them at constant speed of 8 mph. Dick and Jane both continue walking toward each other at a constant 3 mph. Neglecting the time lost each time Spot reverses direction, how far has Spot run in the time it takes Dick and Jane to meet?
