The shortest distance from A to B that can be traced on the surface is the sum of longest diagonal of the block's surface (26cm) and the thickness of the block ( 6cm)

 

The length of diagonal  D = sqrt ( 24² + 10² ) = 26 cm

 

The shortest distance from A to B that can be traced is:      26 + 6 = 32 cm  indecision
