In a backyard lies a block of wood 9" by 9" by 22". The long edge of the board lies along a north/south direction. An ant is sitting on the south end of the board, half way up vertically, and 1" from the east edge. A spider is sitting on the north end of the board, half way up vertically, and 1" from the west edge. The spider can crawl at a rate of 1" per minute. The ant figures that it will take 1+22+8=31 minutes for the spider to reach him so he dozes off for a 30 minute nap. Just as the ant wakes up the spider kills him. By what route did the spider take to get to the ant in 30 minutes?




Have fun with that
