A cat chases a mouse. The cat is originally 4 feet behind the mouse, which is running in the same direction along the same route as the cat. If the cat's speed is 17 feet per second and the mouse's speed is 12 feet per second, how long will it take the cat to catch up with the mouse?

The cat's speed is 17-12 ft/s = 5 ft/s faster thsn the mouse and will cover the 4 feet difference in 4 ft / 5 ft/sec = .8 sec

bye-bye mouse
