Three terminals A, B, and C are to be connected to three computers D, E and F so that A is connected D, B to E and C to F. All are in different cities. A and D are 1500 miles apart as are B and E and C and F. The locations of the terminals are 25 miles apart (i.e., A is 25 miles from B and C and B is 25 miles from C). The same is true for the locations of the computers D, E and F.
