I've been trying this problem for hours and i can't seem to find a method that gets the answers x=15 and y =7 i've done dijkstra's algorithm (hopefully correctly) but i can't seem to work out where to go from there. Any help would be appreciated my head hurts lol

yeah it's definitley semi eulerian so i tried equating the weight 320 +x + y to the minimum length plus distance between A and G as they were odd nodes from the postman algorithm but i got no where :/ gave me answer for x in the 100's

You really need to provide a link to show this is one of the released 2021 material, otherwise it must be considered as a locked paper/question.
If your teacher really has provided it, then it should be publically available. Please provide the link.

A link helps verify that it is a publically available exam question - not always necessary but helps remove any "confusoin", especially for exam questions and the current method of assessment. So thanks for doing it.

oh fair enough things to remember for next time. Also finally worked out the reason i wasn't getting the solutions was because i set up my route inspection equations wrong (380 + x +2y =409 not 380 + x + y =409-- a whole lot of headache for a minor error!) so all is well that ends well !
