Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i guess you can grind it out with cases, for example if \(a\leq b\leq c\) then \[\min(a, (\min(b,c))=\min(a, b)=a\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0similarly if \(a\leq c\leq b\) then \(\min(a,\min(b,c))=\min(a,c)=a\) and so on

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh i guess you have to say for the first one that \(\min(a, \min(b,c))=a=\min(\min(a,b),c)\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0likewise for the second. there may be a snappier way to do this, but it did say by cases, so just grind it out
