    Would you label the vertices of the uploaded diagram of a cube so that the points are consistent with those on the cube in the posted problem? Thanks. @chihiroasleaf

    @chihiroasleaf Are you asking for the difference in size between a face diagonal segment BG of the cube and the diagonal of the cube, segment ED? Or, are you asking what is the minimum distance between the skew lines BG and ED?

    I'm asking the minimum distance between the skew lines BG and ED @Directrix
