# The Bank Job

## Question

You just held up a bank on the corner of 6th & 7th avenue
and walked to your get away car but upon entering the car,
you've been spotted on the CCTV that alarmed the patrol
cars on the 3 corners of the area that is bounded by high
walls along the perimeter . If all the vehicles are as
fast as each other and all streets and avenues are of same
span of one-way roads, where is the best intersection for
the get away car to be waiting for you in order to evade
the police cars in hot pursuit?

Assuming the patrol cars begin moving upon seeing the you get into your get away car, then intuitively, it would be either the corner of 7th Ave & 8th Ave, or the corner of 7th Ave & 4th St. But since one could say that if the get away car was parked on the corner of 7th Ave & 8th Ave, then police offciers parked there would simply get out of there patrol car and arrest you on the spot. So the best answer would be 7th Ave & 4th St. This provides the greatest distance from the nearest patrol car (P1) following the one-way arrows. But as this is merely intuition based on a picture, its probably wrong!

A client just encashed a lottery check from the bank at 6th
cor.7th avenue and run to your taxi just parked somewhere
near an intersection but he have been spotted by a look out
who radio the 3 robbers cars on the corners of the area that
is limited by walls on all sides. If your vehicle is as fast
as the bad guys vehicles and all blocks and paths are of the
same span on one-way roads, where is the optimal location
for your cab to be waiting for him in order to escape all the
Pursuers (P1,P2,P3)?

That is right.you can't park on corners and be captured on foot. If you started on 4th-7th P2 will get you on 1st-8th or 2nd-4th.
