Rabbit Turtle Paradox

           The first scenario is a situation where the turtle wins the race. If both the rabbit and the turtle begin the race at the same time, with the turtle being some distance ahead of the rabbit, say 100 meters. For the rabbit to run and get to the point where the turtle started, the latter will have moved some distanced, say two meters, hence will still be leading.  If the rabbit covers the distance and gets to the second point of the turtle, the latter shall have advanced further to a third point, which will take the rabbit sometime to cover and even catch up with the turtle.  A second scenario comes in when  both the rabbit and the turtle begins he race at the same point time. In this scenario, the rabbit would win the race because it is a quick runner as compared to the turtle.  They could also draw by arriving at the end point at the same time, and this is often likely in the situation where the turtle is allowed to begin the race some distance ahead of the rabbit.
