He wanted some more slaves to serve him at his royal palace.

A medieval king needed to work out how he could recruit fighting men for the battle ahead. However, there were so many distractions around the castle, his thinking became confused. So, in order to change his daze into knights, he asked for a secluded walk to be made so that he could ponder in peace.

The head gardener was given the job of planting lines of high bushes. First, he planted a line running 100 paces east. Then from the end of that line he planted a line 100 paces north, then 100 west, 98 south, 98 east, 96 north, 96 west, and so on, dropping the measurement by two paces every second anticlockwise 90 degree turn. This made a square spiral path 2 paces wide.

If the king intended to walk down the middle of the path, how long was the path?
