Semi-Weekly Riddle: To Catch a Theif

Leave a comment

Before we start the answer to last week’s semi weekly riddle has been posted to the answers section. YAR!!!

A cop on the beat spots the suspected criminal exiting a store exactly 27 step in front of him. The cop yells at the thief to stop. The chase ensues. For every 5 steps the cop takes, the criminal takes 8 steps. Two steps in length the cop takes, the criminal has to take 5 steps to equal the same distance. How many steps did the cop take in order to catch the criminal?

  • assume they ran in a straight line
  • please refrain from posted your answers to the riddle until next week so as not to spoil it for other puzzlers.
