it has to reach the grain located on the opposite edge (also at a distance xcm from one

of its ends) as shown below.

(i) What is the length of the shortest route to the grain if x = 2cm? How many routes of

this length are there?

(ii) Find an x for which there are four distinct shortest length routes to the grain.
