# On the Run

A certain slave fled from Milan to Naples going $$\frac{1}{10}$$ of the whole journey each day.  At the beginning of the third day, his master sent a slave after him and this slave went $$\frac{1}{7}$$ of the whole journey each day.  I do not know how far it is from Milan to Naples, but I wish to know when the latter overtook him.
