HELP PLEASE!An airline serves four cities, Abbott, Bache, Cabot, and Dacoma. These are labeled located at points A, B, C and D respectively. Currently, the solid lines represent the airlines present routes. Point F represents the new airport which is being built. This will add four new airline routes, noted by the dotted lines. Currently, travelers who wish to travel from Abbott to Cabot have to first travel to Bache. After, the new airport, F, is built, how many miles will a passenger save traveling from Abbot to the new airport to Cabot? Round your answer to the nearest tenth.
