The circle shown has four equally-spaced diameters of length 2 cm. What is the length of the longest path that can be drawn in one continuous pen stroke from A to B without retracing and without having the path cross itself? (The path may meet itself only at the center but may not cross over itself.) Express your answer in terms of π.

    Assume the lines and the circle and everything is equal and NOT different lengths or anything.

    @sasogeek i dont think that will work because the path you drew meets itself at A?
