## Computer Networking A small office needs to network five computers by connecting one computer to another and forming a large loop. The length of cable needed (in feet) between pairs of machines is given in the table. Use the edge-picking algorithm to design a method to network the computers while attempting to use the smallest possible amount of cable. To determine

To design:

A method to network the computers by using the edge-picking algorithm.

### Explanation of Solution

Given:

5 computers are Computer A, B, C, D and E.

Length of cable

Use edge picking algorithm
