This problem requires a ful prove:

There are three cities, randomly displayed wherever you want. Find a point from which the sum of the distances is the smallest possible.


If someone gets it, I will donate 4 FRI$

That point would have to be the center of a circle that circumscribes the triangle formed by the three points.

I love wikipedia. Who'd have thought that "The circumcenter's isogonal conjugate is the orthocenter." Awesome.

56 + 56 + 56 = 168
