    The difference in their running speeds is 8 feet per second. This means that My Bequest is gaining 8 feet every second on Flying Lady. You can use this to figure out how long it takes to gain 40 feet.

    Well... 40 feet overall, divided by 8 feet every second, gets you five seconds. Does that make sense?
