Place your finger in the starting box in the grid and follow each instruction. You will find that you visit each square before finishing in the appropriate box.
Now cut up the board into six rectangles each consisting of two adjacent squares. Then put them back together to form a new three-by-four grid with the starting square one place lower than it was before. Do all this in such a way that, once again, if you follow the instructions you visit each square.
In your new grid, what instruction is in the top left-hand corner, and what is the instruction in the bottom right-hand corner?
