Route Roundabout

Geometry Level 3

You stumble on a roundabout.
You believe without a doubt
there is no more reason to pout.
It makes you want to scream and shout.

You and ride and ride and ride and ride.
To the thrill you now abide.
Your heart flung open wide and wide.

Round and round you feel sublime;
Went 50 to 100 times.

You forgot, but feel no shame:
Each possibility's the same.

Assume the radius is 1.
How far might you have had your fun?

Details and assumptions:

  • You travel on a fixed track around the circumference; don't add the distance it would take to turn upon exiting.
  • Round your answer to the tenth's place.
  • There is one exit on each of the four corners of the circle.
