1. Alfonso is relaxing in the center of a square pool when suddenly he hears a yell. Ivan is standing at the corner of the pool looking angry. Alfonso chooses a direction and starts swimming towards the side of the pool. Even though he does not know Ivans exact speed, Alfonso knows he can outrun Ivan, so if he exits the pool before Ivan gets there, he is safe. Unfortunately, he is a very slow swimmer, and Ivan has started running around the edges of the pool towards Alfonsos exit point. Ivan is afraid of water and wont enter the pool. Also, once Alfonso chooses a direction, he never turns and he always remains straight, no matter how hard it may be. At what point should Alfonso try to exit the pool?
