Your challenge is to draw four straight lines, which

one after the other without taking your pencil off the
page. Each line starts where the last line finishes.
this now by drawing nine dots on a piece of paper and

four straight lines without taking your pencil off the
page. Each line must start where the last line finished.
See if you can find a solution. Do not look at the answer
