Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well you have given: Distance b/n 1st and 2nd is 5.7 and distance between 2nd and 3rd is 1/3 of 5.7, which means divide 5.7 by 3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So from 1 to 2 there is 5.7 and from 2 to 3 there is 1.9. Which means from 1 to 3 there is 5.7+1.9 = 7.6
