Distance Traveled Puzzle

Two friends decide to get together; so they start riding bikes towards each other. They plan to meet halfway. Each is riding at 6 MPH. They live 36 miles apart. One of them has a pet carrier pigeon and it starts flying the instant the friends start traveling. The pigeon flies back and forth at 18 MPH between the 2 friends until the friends meet.

How many miles does the pigeon travel?

    It takes 3 hours for the friends to meet; so the pigeon flies for 3 hours at 18 MPH = 54 miles.
