Wouldn't the buildings slow you down and you should be able to run faster through the park?













at what minimum rate must you walk in order to make sure everything in the circle is within 15 minutes


What's a more accurate "radius" for a 15 minute walk? Surely it's not a perfect circle.


What perimeter really represents a 15 minute walk, because of all of the taxicab geometry involved and how nonrectilinear the streets are?




How fast does one have to walk to reach the circular border from the center in 15 minutes?



This seems like a great idea  how can I use it in my geometry curriculum?

It would seem that all points on that circle can't really be 15 minute walk from the center. What would the real shape be?







Are there places in that circle that it would actually take more than 15 minutes to walk to?















What shape would a true "15 mt. walk" line have, considering different routelengths and not simply airdistance?


What is the average walking rate used to calculate the 15min walk radius




How long will it take to get to where the person is pointing?
