Hah! Very nice. I did it in my head like smack but I really enjoyed it.

3-4-5 right triangle. Yawn.

permit me to be obnoxious - they both FACE the same direction and WALK in opposite directions, that is, one walks backward and the other walks forward. taking left doesnt do much, they go the same direction, and now its 8. bam. haha. sorry to be a nitpicker.

Also, you left it up to us to assume the men were walking at the same speed!

seanlandrews, allow me to point out that the teaser specifies a distance, so it doesn't matter at what speed they walk, they will still get to the same place.

Also less than whatever, who cares what direction they face, they walk in opposite directions; backwards , sideways or crabwise it says they walk in opposite directions. A quick and simple teaser - well done! {A full solution might be nice}
