Solution to yesterday's starter

The Königsberg Bridges is a famous mathematical problem.

Watch this video to find out how a mathematician worked out the answer.

Zoe sent in the correct answer.

 

Here’s my answer for today’s Maths Challenge.

Me and my mum worked out that it’s not possible!!

There needs to be an even number of bridges for it to work!

From Zoe

So did Alex (but he bent the rules a little!)

 
Here is my solution.
It is impossible to go over all seven bridges with out either using a boat or two people doing the task, so I found a way to do it with two people and a boat.

Anahita was also correct

 


 I don’t think it is possible to go to all the bridges only once.

Thanks
Anahita
