I'm not sure where to go with this problem...I've tried using the inequalities defined for Euc. Spaces in my text i.e.:
|z - y| <= |z - x| + |x - y|
|x - y| <= |x - z| + |z - y|
etc.
But I'm not sure if manipulating these inequalities is going to get me where I need to go. Any help with this problem would be much appreciated thank you.
