Numerical path (Posted on 2008-09-23) Difficulty: 2 of 5
Draw only one continuous line into the 8x8 diagram below, which begins in the left cell above (with a “01”) and ends in the right bottom cell (with a “33”). The line must pass through all the numbers from 01 to 33 (through the center of each cell), once and only once through each one, and can run only horizontally or vertically (not diagonally). Besides, the line may not cross itself.

Far from being a trial and error problem, this can be solved logically.

re: Petition director Comment 11 of 11 |
(In reply to Petition director by Gamer)

Gamer, I think I didnīt make myself clear.

When this problem was in the queue, Brian asked me about the three 19īs and just one 29. I checked with the original, and itīs correct.

What I am saying is that, probably, the original has a typo.
