    An ant stands in the middle of a circle (3 metres in diameter) and walks in a straight line at a random angle from 0 to 360 degrees. Problem is, it can only walk one metre before it needs a break. The ant has the memory of a fish and forgets what direction it has just walked in.. Anyway, after the break, it gets all dizzy and thus chooses another random direction from 0 to 360 in an attempt to escape the circle again. As you can well imagine, it could escape the circle after just 2 walks (just one break needed). Or... it could take 20,000 walks (19,999 breaks needed)!! There might even be the very slim possibility it might take 20,000^20,000 walks.... What is the average amount of walks required for the ant to escape the circle?

    is this a trick question. the highest amount of walks that the ant can do is \[\infty\] because it can continue to walk in circles foreer

    we need to find the probability that on the second walk what angles it needs to be -.-

    |dw:1341368212808:dw|what are the odds (what percentage of the possible directions) that he escapes the circle on the next move...maybe I dunno, I'm just thinking where to start
