THE CYCLISTS' TOUR.
(Unicursal and Route Problems
Two cyclists were consulting a road map in preparation for a little tour
together. The circles represent towns, and all the good roads are
represented by lines. They are starting from the town with a star, and
must complete their tour at E. But before arriving there they want to
visit every other town once, and only once. That is the difficulty. Mr.
Spicer said, "I am certain we can find a way of doing it;" but Mr. Maggs
replied, "No way, I'm sure." Now, which of them was correct? Take your
pencil and see if you can find any way of doing it. Of course you must
keep to the roads indicated.
