Number of people who can swim is 3.22 billion.

Zombies don’t have to swim

They can breathe under water
or
just play at the beach.

How long for Zombie to walk around the earth?
According to The Universe Today the circumference of the earth is 40,075 km or 24,901km.
In other words, if you could drive your car around the equator of the Earth (yes, even over the oceans), you’d put on an extra 40,075 km on the odometer. It would take you almost 17 days driving at 100 km/hour, 24 hours a day to complete that journey.
As Zombie can walk under water, how long would it take Zombie to walk around the earth?
Assuming he doesn’t have to stop and that the ocean is not too deep ….
y = k t
y= 40,075 km
k = 2.25 kph
40,075 = 2.25 t
t = 40,075/ 2.25
t = 17,811 hours
t = 17,811/24 days
t = 742 days
t = 742/365
t = 2 years 12 days
ARE WE THERE YET?
…………………………Argh! Grrrr! Gurgle!

Shark attack
What is the probability of being attacked by a shark while walking around the earth?
According to National Geographic 70 people are attacked by sharks each year.
70 people are attacked by sharks each year and 3.22 Billion people can swim (see above).
.
We will assume they swim in the sea.
The probability is 70 in 3.22 billion or
1 in (3.22/70) billion = 1 in .046 billion
or
1 in 46,000,000
What is the probability of
Zombie being eaten by a shark?
But Zombie spends 1.42 years in water when walking around the earth. He is more likely to be gobbled up.
.

BUT the probability is soooooo low ZOMBIE will be OK
and
she might even eat a SHARK!

Zombies don’t bleed but Hollywood keeps splattering Zombies in FAKE BLOOD in movies. So every Zombie must know the cost of FAKE BLOOD.
So much FAKE BLOOD seems to be sold in America we have to use American volumes:
1 US fl oz = 29.6 ml
1 US pint = 16 US fl oz = 473 ml
1 US gallon = 8 US pints = 3785 ml = 3.79 litres
These are approx values as manufacturers round off conversions from fl oz to ml.
Mathspig found 3 types of fake blood out there but Halloween Blood, Stage Blood and Movie Blood.

How to Survive Zombie Attack
VIDEO

.
.
How much will it cost to fill a bath tub with FAKE BLOOD?
Typical volume of water in a
bath tub = 50 US gallons = 189.5 litres
…………………………..
Use the cheapest available fake blood products above. To be accurate we should work out the price of Fake Blood per litre or gallon for every product, but we will ‘Buy in bulk, mathpiggies!’ The cost would be:
Halloween Blood Bath = $ 29.99 per gallon x 50
……………………………… = $1499.50
……… Stage Blood Bath = $ 49.79 per litre x 189.5
……………………………… = $ 9435.21
…….. Movie Blood Bath = $ 129.99 per gallon x 50
…………………………….. = $ 6499.50
It costs heaps more to have a STAGE BLOOD BATH and you’d have to do it every night of your ZOMBIE show.
