    Attachment 556247 The vertex question part ii) was something along these lines where the graph was semi eulerian and had 5 vertices and was a tree
    I don't think that's a correct tree. A tree is a graph without cyclic routes, and this graph is cyclic

    It was x \geq 2y not 2x \geq y

    "Twice as many as x as y". So if y was 50 then x would be 100.
    Yeah it was, my mistake. See edit

    That's correct. The vertices B and D needed to have an odd degree, so the shortest route between the other two odd vertices (12) had to be added to the total weight of the edges in the graph. The start vertex was B.
    WHOOP WHOOP! loved this exam!

    I got £515 in the exam for some reason, but the answer is definitely £520

    Ah okay, I'm curious why you think it's definitely 520? I really hope it is lol
    I checked the answer on Wolfram Alpha. I've copied the link below if you want to check for yourself

    Not too bad, I find the algorithms and techniques to be simple, however the difficult part for me is needing to apply knowledge in some questions rather than just getting on with the working
