Hall of Fame
Categories : analysis : dog.p

A body of soldiers form a 50m-by-50m square ABCD on the parade ground.
In a unit of time, they march forward 50m in formation to take up the
position DCEF. The army's mascot, a small dog, is standing next to its
                                       handler at location A. When the
          B----C----E                  soldiers start marching, the dog
          |    |    |   forward-->     begins to run around the moving
          A----D----F                  body in a clockwise direction,
                                       keeping as close to it as possible.
When one unit of time has elapsed, the dog has made one complete
circuit and has got back to its handler, who is now at location D. (We
can assume the dog runs at a constant speed and does not delay when
turning the corners.)

How far does the dog travel?
