distance and speed

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
two people walk at a straight line towards each other at 4m/s from a starting distance of 500m.
a bee is flying between them at 10m/s and when its reaches the other person walking it turns around and fly’s the other way and keeps doing so until the two persons walk into each other.
How many times can the bee fly between them before the two people walk into eachother

3. The attempt at a solution
i have a good understanding of math and physics, and i have tried to do a formula but i just can’t get it to work.
if posted wrong let me know.
edit: starting to think that its probably a paradox because eventually there is 1m and the bee turns around and fly the other way and then its 0,6m then 0,3 then 0,1 etc.
