A duck is swimming about in a circular pond. A ravenous fox (who cannot swim) is roaming the edges of the pond, waiting for the duck to come close. The fox can run faster than the duck can swim. In order to escape, the duck must swim to the edge of the pond before flying away. Assume that the duck can't fly until it has reached the edge of the pond.
How much faster must the fox run that the duck swims in order to be always able to catch the duck?
