Four Dogs Squared: November 2021 challenge question

Posted October 31, 2021 12:00 AM
Pathfinder Tags: challenge question

Four dogs are placed in opposite corners of a 1 mile wide square.

These dogs are fast. 30 mph fast. And they are stamina freaks.

At their trainer's command, each dog will run in a straight line after the dog to their left.

At what part of the square do the dogs meet? How long does it take?

Bonus: How far did each dog go?
