People! Im in dire need of assistance. I have been given a task to complete and i am having alot of trouble with it. The shape below is drawn without removing the pencil from the page. If anyone can do it, please tell me how to by numbering the lines that were drawn in order or something like that.

Here are the rules:
- You cannot remove the pen/ pencil from the page.
- You cannot trace back over a line that is already been drawn.
- If your drawing it on paper, you cannot fold the paper in any way (don't see how this is cheating but there the rules)

Good Luck and Thank You to anyone who helps.

Unless there's some trick I can't see it's impossible.
If you want to go all the way around a shape there has to be exactly two places where there are an odd number of ways to choose where to go next. The starting point and the finishing point (ie where you put the pen to the paper and take it off).
This shape has four places where there are five (odd number) ways to choose (ie the corners of the square in the middle).
Not really sure how to explain it better without pictures (and I'm to lazy to draw them).

I know this is friggin' solid to do people. but i thank you all for trying. i doff my hat to ye'.
i got a hint off him. he said that you can draw 'half' lines if you want. he showd me this on a sketch. you can draw only half of a line if you want and go in a different direction. but i still cant do it.

lol i don't think thats possible -_-

I think someone wants you to waste your time. If you get rid of the "petals", it is pretty obvious that you can't do it with a square with an x in the middle. If someone solves this correctly, I'd be willing to admit their superior pencil skills.

I cannot share my infinite wisdom with mere mortals. Not because I don't want to, but because the crazy sexy awesomeness of The Truth will drive you insane and make your liver implode, and I can't handle another lawsuit right now.
