A man runs

He will only need one quart, no matter how far he runs. If the radius of the track is **t** miles, then the circumference is 2*pi*t miles. The man will run **n** laps, so the total distance is 2*pi*n*t miles. If he drinks **s** quarts per mile, then the total amount of beer is 2*pi*n*t*s, which equals one quart!
