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.
...

Does this make sense?

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

A --> E = \$7
E --> C = \$2
C --> F = \$4
F --> A = \$3

7 + 2 + 4 + 3 = 16
