GIVEN: Dick takes twice as long as Jane to run any given distance.
In other words, Jane travels TWICE as fast as Dick does.
So, for every 1 meter that Dick travels, Jane travels 2 meters.

GIVEN: Starting at the same moment, Dick and Jane run towards each other from opposite ends of the schoolyard, a total distance of x, at their respective constant rates until they meet
This is a CLOSING GAP question.
So, for every 1 meter that Dick travels towards Jane, Jane travels 2 meters towards Dick.
In other words, every time the gap closes by 3 units of length, Jane travels 2 units and Dick travels 1 unit.

Since the initial gap is x, we know that the total COMBINED distances traveled by Dick and Jane is x.
This means Dick traveled 1/3 of x, and Jane traveled 2/3 of x

We get:
QUANTITY A: 2/3 of x
QUANTITY B: (2/3)x

Answer: C

Cheers,
Brent

Dick traveled 1/3 of x, and Jane traveled 2/3 of x (As Jane is twice faster then Dick)

QUANTITY A: 2/3 of x
QUANTITY B: (2/3)x

So, C
