#1

To solve this thing?

You have to draw a line through all of the walls without going through them twice or cross you line.

#2

just one line or 2?

#3

Nope.

#4

does the line have to be straight?

#5

Do you have to go through the outside lines aswell?

#6

It is possible if it doesn't have to be a straight line.

#7

I remember there was a thread on this a while back and every kept on trying (and failing) to figure it out.

So no.

So no.

#8

i nearly got it...then i relised i went through a wall twice...so no

#9

I got it, i'll post it here in a sec, it was pretty easy...

#10

you go through the top box on the top left go up go over to the right box go down and go back left out the boxes. unless you have to go through the walls on the outside

edit i did it again the other way as well its not that hard if im doing it right

#11

One big line through the whole thing.

#12

#13

That's if you have to pass through every line on there...

#14

Diagonal lines if you are considering each wall to be broken.

I would argue that even if a wall is intersected, it is still one wall, and just go based on that.

Edit: One single line?

#15

You crossed your line.

#16

You guys have to go through all the outside walls as well.

#17

It's impossible.

#18

This is a failed example.

#19

You crossed your line.

whoops, my bad...

#20

here i got it

*edit* sory there shoul be a line in the on the right between where the bottom rigth boxes arent lined up, towards the upper right box

im uploading the correct version

double edit damn i missed one, o well

"this problem has no solution.

because it has 3 locations (3 rectangles) which have an odd number of lines leaving each of them.. And also the outside has an odd number of lines coming to it (or leaving it)

a continuos line can have only only 2 loose ends.

a continuous path (Euler's path) may have a maximum of two spaces with odd lines leaving it (or arriving at it)

See Euler's theorem on graphs

It is generalized from Konigsberg's 7 bridges problem -

it has no solution either as proven by Euler"

Thanks to realme on Yahoo answers for the quote above. I did look at the 7 bridges problem, it is the same theory. Here is a link supporting it:

here i got it

Missing the center vertical line.

#23

Probably failed, but oh well.

#24

The lines aren't curved, is their anything wrong?

Thanks Raven

So my solution is wrong then? I went throught every line once, and i didnt cross over my own line...

#30

Anyone know where I could find the leech fingers that were in the MIND**** thread cause my avatar is like a horrible version of it.

#31

No. You need to go through every wall.

#32

I'm telling you it's one big line all the way through. It doesn't break the rules.

Here are the one's you missed and again this isn't solvable!!!!

It's gotta be solvable! It's gotta be!

maggot9779,

The solution presented that says one should use a large brush because it fits within the “rules.” However, the definition of a line says that it is only one (1) dimensional, a line there for cannot have height and width it would then be a plane. So the “solution” presented where this individual accuses people of not being able to “focus” on the solution is in fact not focusing enough on the “rules”

The first time I was told the puzzle it was told to me to cross each line once and only once. So I crossed every time (picking up the pencil each time). However when the rules say make a line this does not work since this makes several lines.

winnar?

#37

Missing one in the middle. ^

#38

EDIT: nvm, went through one twice

it isnt possible..

#40

can someone explain to me what i did wrong, because this seems wayyy to easy

I mean, i went thru all without crossing
