:Based on his times, it is two squares with the same side length. Base on that geometry, Path #2 will be the hypotenuse of a 45 degree right triangle. t = √(20^2 + 20^2) = 20 * √2 = 48.28. Path #3 would be t = √(20^2 + 40^2) = 20 * √5 = 44.72. Not sure where you got roughly 40 from. Were you thinking of the sin of 30 degree rule where the hypotenuse is double the opposite side? In this case, the adjacent is double the opposite which puts the hypotenuse at √5 times the opposite.[[User:Flewk|Flewk]] ([[User talk:Flewk|talk]]) 17:10, 24 December 2015 (UTC)

Shouldn't this be added to Time management category? {{subst:Unsigned IP|172.68.62.4}}

What the hell, no unsigned templates here?
 
Anyway, I'm wondering why there's any worry. Couldn't he just cut across the grass diagonally? Sidewalk-conformist. — [[User:Kazvorpal|Kazvorpal]] ([[User talk:Kazvorpal|talk]]) 22:39, 14 August 2019 (UTC)
