## A BANK HOLIDAY PUZZLE.

(

Unicursal and Route Problems)

Two friends were spending their bank holiday on a cycling trip. Stopping

for a rest at a village inn, they consulted a route map, which is

represented in our illustration in an exceedingly simplified form, for

the puzzle is interesting enough without all the original complexities.

They started from the town in the top left-hand corner marked A. It will

be seen that there are one hundred and twenty such towns, all connected

by straight roads. Now they discovered that there are exactly 1,365

different routes by which they may reach their destination, always

travelling either due south or due east. The puzzle is to discover which

town is their destination.

Of course, if you find that there are more than 1,365 different routes

to a town it cannot be the right one.
