It will give you 13 from A to C and F...but you have to return to A, so it is an additonal 3 dollars of cost. So 16

The distance from A to D is 2.
The distance from B to E is 5.
The distance from F to E is 6.

Hi Bunuel,

If we will do A-c. then C->e then E->f then F-A

then 3+2+6+3 = 14

Please clarify this. What mistake i am making

Thanks
