A 100-foot-long moving walkway moves at a constant rate of 6 feet per second. Ash steps onto the start of the walkway and stands. Bob steps onto the start of the walkway two seconds later and strolls forward along the walkway at a constant rate of 4 feet per second. Two seconds after that, Chip reaches the start of the walkway and, instead of getting on the walkway, moves briskly forward beside the walkway at a constant rate of 8 feet per second.

Bob reaches the end of the walkway, and having forgotten something, immediately turns around and walks back briskly on the walkway at 10 feet per second. After Bob has turned back, at a certain time, one of these three persons is exactly halfway between the other two.

At that time, find the distance in feet between the start of the walkway and the middle person.
