Two posts, 1 foot to a side, are seated in the ground exactly 2 feet apart. My horse is tied to an anchor on the outside of one post with a rope that is 30 feet long. He likes to walk, but can only go in circles due to the rope and posts. How many times can he go around the posts before he runs out of rope?

Glad you guys liked it.
