QOD #28

Due at TA office at 11:59 pm MDT on July 23,  2017


You are trapped on a hill surrounded by a circular moat. In this moat lives a fearsome Hydra that sleeps only at the new moon! The hill has some shelter, ample dried food supplies, a bucket, and firewood, but no water anywhere except for in the moat. If you can collect water from the moat, you can boil it and drink it. The Hydra can swim four times faster than you can run, and will always swim in a direction that minimizes the distance between the two of you (unless it catches you, then it simply eats you). The new moon is two weeks away. Can you survive long enough to escape?


Prove that you cannot, or show how you can.
