    In my D1 Edexcel book it says:

    ''A path is a finite sequence of edges, such that the end vertex of one edge in the sequence is the start vertex of the next, and in which no vertex appears more than once''

    Idon't understand? Can someone clarify please? Thanks a lot

    Seems like a pretty concise definition to me. What don't you understand?

    It just means a path is where some vertices (not all) have been joined up by edges (arcs), and there are no repeats i.e. ABCDE is a path. ABCDCBE is not.

    So ABDF would be a path, and ABGDCG, wouldn't right?

    As the second one returns to G twice?
