## [Puzzle] - We have a 10 meter long queue of soldiers. The queue walked exactly 10 meters

Here is the problem: We have a 10 meter long queue of soldiers. The queue walked exactly 10 meters (that means the first person walked 10 meters ahead in a straight line and others followed). As soon as the queue had started moving, the last soldier ran up to the first soldier, passed on a message to him and ran back to his position (while the queue still moving ahead). He reached his position (last in the queue) exactly at the moment the queue had traveled 10 meters.

Question: What is the distance traveled by last soldier ?
