Interview

Applied online and through UCS, first round interview. Two interviewers, really nice. 50% fit 50% quantitative. Brain teaser at the end: two people going from A to B, one walking at 10 mph, one biking at 25 mph. They start together, but whereas the first one walks linearly from A to B, the biker as soon as he reaches the walker bikes back to A and then bikes again to the walker and then back and forth again till the walker arrives at B. What's the distance covered by the walker?
