Tom is chasing Jerry again! Jerry can run at 1 meter/sec, but Tom can run at 1.5 meter/sec.
Tom, being a stupid cat, runs into a 3 meter long sofa and takes 3 seconds to wriggle out. Jerry's mouse hole is 2 meters away from the other end of the sofa.
If Jerry runs under the sofa 1 second after Tom gets stuck, and Tom runs over the sofa to catch Jerry, will Tom catch Jerry?
