Puzzling Pentomino Paths

4 comments:

  1. By using the "easier" pentominos shown in number 2 I determined that the first pentomino is an easier path for the ants. I decided this because a straight line is always easier. Since the ants can only right and down (and not left and up) I figured they could go down once and then go right the rest of the way or vice versa. In total they can go about six different ways, so the first pentomino can allow all the ants to arrive at point x.

  2. the one on the right because it has seven different ways you can get from point A to point X. The one on the left has only five ways to reach point X.

  3. actually the one on the left has 6 ways and the one on the right has 9 ways for the easier ones and the ones at the top are 12 and 9
