How Long is the Yellow Brick Road?

Samuel J. Ferguson, a mathematics PhD student and friend of the Belin-Blank Center (check out his other posts here), made a video about how to solve a simplified version of a problem posed by the Yorkshire Post in 1976.  Follow along, and then try to solve the full problem!  Sam will release a few more hints after the new year, and he’ll share the answer toward the end of January.

Happy holidays, and enjoy the puzzle!
