I need someone to approve this idea!

Sometimes, even the creator, which is me in this case, can't solve one's own problems. So I will post my problems here, we will discuss the answers to the problem. And when the answer is revealed, I will quickly delete this discussion and post the problem for everyone to solve.

"But doesn't that everyone know the answer when the problem is posted? Even the explanations are understood by everyone."

"Well, I haven't thought of that. At least, you gain those things from the discussion."

The problem for this time is:

We have assemblies every Monday at the schoolyard. And it is boring, but because there mustn't be anything from the principle that is left out so I have to pay attention to every word she says. I usually look down to the ground. There are tiles laid down the ground. I imagine there is a city, a miniature one, with the population filled with ants. (I kill them at the end anyway. I have a lot of regrets after doing that.) The tile looks like the figure below.

What is the minimum amount of 90-degree turns that have to be made for one to go through all of the roadways in the map above?

This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments should further the discussion of math and science.

When posting on Brilliant:

  • Use the emojis to react to an explanation, whether you're congratulating a job well done , or just really confused .
  • Ask specific questions about the challenge or the steps in somebody's explanation. Well-posed questions can add a lot to the discussion, but posting "I don't understand!" doesn't help anyone.
  • Try to contribute something new to the discussion, whether it is an extension, generalization or other idea related to the challenge.
  • Stay on topic — we're all here to learn more about math and science, not to hear about your favorite get-rich-quick scheme or current world events.
