What is the minimum
number of strokes to reproduce the drawing below without lifting up the pencil from the paper (no tricks at all), and without passing over a line segment (or part of it) already drawn? You may begin and end wherever you like, and line segments may cross each other, but only as intersections.
Note: a new stroke occurs when a line type ceased because you have to stop and change direction.
(In reply to re(7): No Subject
"Charlie, IŽll not argue with you about "semantics". You know what is a stroke. And if you trace only one line, thereŽs no stroke at all."
Yes I know what is a stroke. But you did argue semantics, in "correcting" Percy. The only dictionary definitions relevant to this are:
11. a single complete movement, esp. one continuously repeated in some process.
15. a movement of a pen, pencil, brush, graver, or the like.
16. a mark traced by or as if by one movement of a pen, pencil, brush, or the like.
