A fly on a cube (Posted on 2002-04-23) Difficulty: 2 of 5
Consider the cube shown (assume for argument's sake that it's a perfect cube, contraty to what the picture may look like).

A fly, sitting in the vertex (A) of this cube must travel the surface of the cube until it arrives at the vertex (G).

If the fly cannot leave the surface of the cube, what is the shortest path for the fly to take between the two points?
