prove that for every connected graph G, if G has no cycles then for every pair of vertices a,b in G, there is only one path from a to b in G.

the contrapositive of this would be easier to prove but i'm not exactly sure how to do that..

a cycle is a circuit with the only repeated nodes at the beginning and end.

every path from a to b is also a path from b to a

if there are two paths from a to b, then...there is more than one cycle? - May 5th 2010, 01:44 PMPlato

I don't know I'm confused. Does it mean there is one cycle?
