    CaptainBlack or any other genius out there :-)

    If the vertices of a square represent four townships and are all connected by a system of roads.

    To keep costs to a minimum, what is the ideal arrangement of roads?

    What insights are gained from the above to find similar cost effective systems of roadways for 5 and 6 towns i.e. those represented by the vertices of a regular pentagon and hexagon respectively.

    Please help...

    :-(... just wanted to see if you had anything else to add RoL?

    It's a monster coursework that's all. It goes on to ask about shortest distance in a quadrilateral, cube and regular solid (i.e. 5 platonics)?



    Any genius out there wants to help a little. I could always put what I have done so far on here but it would take me ages. Honestly I have written about 4 pages so far but I need to write a least 10! :-(
