# Meeting Of 2 People On a circular track [closed]

Two persons are running on a circular track either in the same direction or in the opposite direction, indefinitely.

The speed of both of them is given to you.

Speed will be positive in clockwise direction, and negative in anticlockwise direction.

Calculate the number of distinct points, at which they will meet on the circle

For example, if the speed are $1$, $2$ then the number of distinct points are $1$ and if the speeds are $1$, $-1$, then number of distinct points are 2.

Assume the speeds to be x and y. I need a general solution.

 Hi Ashhar, and welcome to Physics Stack Exchange! This is a site for conceptual questions about physics, not for people to do your work for you. If you can edit your question to ask about the specific physics concept that is giving you trouble, I'll be happy to reopen it. See our FAQ and homework policy for more information. – David Zaslavsky♦ Jun 16 '12 at 23:02 ok i understood. i tried solving it using relative velocity concept but i am unable to find a clear solution – Ashhar Jawaid Jun 16 '12 at 23:56 how can i delete this post? – Ashhar Jawaid Jun 16 '12 at 23:57
