THE FIFTEEN TURNINGS.





(Unicursal and Route Problems)
Here is another queer travelling puzzle, the solution of which calls for
ingenuity. In this case the traveller starts from the black town and
wishes to go as far as possible while making only fifteen turnings and
never going along the same road twice. The towns are supposed to be a
mile apart. Supposing, for example, that he went straight to A, then
straight to B, then to C, D, E, and F, you will then find that he has
travelled thirty-seven miles in five turnings. Now, how far can he go in
fifteen turnings?
