The Guys

So the guys are back. This time, they decide to change up their way to work. Let's see what they're up to...

Start the two minute timer...

1. Since Anthony and Charles weren't taking the bus today, Michael decided to do a little reading during the 1320 feet to work.

2. Charles didn't walk the half mile to work.

Based on those two statements, figure out how the guys got to work by walking, running, or bus - and the distance they had to travel: quarter, half, and 1 mile.

    $\begingroup$ I agree with Rubio here. If quoted line number 2 without context I would assume Charles lives half mile from work and decided not to walk that distance. $\endgroup$ – hexomino May 13 at 14:46
