The diagram below shows 7 train stations, labelled A to G, and the times, in minutes,taken to travel between stations.(a) Assuming that no time is added to the journey when a train passes through astation, work out the route that takes the shortest time to travel from A to G.You should list the stations in order.Your route does not need to pass through every station. In reality, passing through a station adds 4 minutes to the overall journey time.(b) Using this information, work out the shortest time taken to travel by train fromA to G.Your route does not need to pass through every station. Time is Up!
