area mazes

these puzzles are very similar to those produced by Naoki Inaba, a prolific puzzle composer
they were featured in the Guardian by Alex Bellos on 3rd August 2015 and in the NY Times on 17th August 2015

the puzzles can all be done using integers

once the puzzles have been done it can be interesting to use fractions to justify lengths or areas
