Solve for X

You are attempting to move from Point A to Point B.

You may move out from A on Mondays through Fridays, after 4 PM–but weekends are okay. Masonry work is being done on A. As a result, large bricks fall from the side of the building. Since you do not wish to endanger the movers, you will comply with the hours.

You may move in to B on Mondays through Fridays, 8 AM to 5 PM–absolutely no weekends. Due to elevator restrictions, it is impossible to change these hours.

Y is the location of the only truck rental facility open on a Sunday.

Please calculate the Aggravation to Distance ratio as X for this move, given the following values:

A = Corner of Cumberland and Connecticut, Washington DC
B = Corner of Chesapeake and Connecticut, Washington DC
Y = South Eads St., Arlington, VA

You have 5 days.

This is by far, the most ridiculous move I have ever been involved in.
