Here is the answer for practice ones:
To construct b=3;
As show below for i=9.
The general idea is actually the same as above, if you want to increase b
for example, if you want b=5 and i=9;
or for example, if you want b=20 and i=9;
So you should
so you can create polygons with every $i\geq0$ and $b\geq3$ values with the method above.
I drew it!
Everything below is my original post:
@Bass had a very similar idea to mine. Funny how that works. I was going to wait and try to actually draw it, but I feel like it isn't worth the effort, now.
OK, so here's my track design, or at least the functional part of it.
I call it The Candle of Chicken.
Unlike the examples above, I've marked the spots that are not walls, that is, there's only a very narrow path available from the start at the bottom.
The starting points are symmetrical, and there's only one choice to make: Either stop after the first ...
