    Sorry, nevermind, I completely misread the question, it's obvious now :o:

    Hi All,

    Would somebody be able to explain exactly what they're asking for in question 5 iii on the June 2007 D1 paper, http://www.mei.org.uk/files/papers/d107ju_3ktw6.pdf

    Find by inspection the route from G to D such that the minimum of the weights for arcs on the route is as large as possible. Give your route and its minimum arc weight. Give an application in which this might be needed.
    I thought it was asking for the longest route to G -> D (e.g. G-A-B-C-F-E-D = 43) but the answer(s) quote G-B-C-F-E-D and G-B-A-E-D = 41 weight, so I must not be understanding what the question is asking.

    I'm probably just being stupid and missing something obvious but any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance!
