## Use the greedy algorithm to find a Hamiltonian circuit starting at vertex A in the weighted To determine

To determine a Hamiltonian circuit starting at vertex A in the weighted graph using the greedy algorithm.

### Explanation of Solution

Given information:

Given, weighted graph is:

Calculation:

A path in a Hamiltonian graph is said to be a Hamiltonian Circuit if it begins and ends at the same vertex and passes through each vertex of a graph exactly once.

The greedy algorithm states to travel along a connected edge that has the smallest weight that is not yet visited. This process continues till all the vertices are visited and returned to the starting vertex.

Here, the vertex A is selected.

Vertex A is of degree 4 and the weights of the connected edges are 27, 15, 24, 38

Hence, as per the Greedy Algorithm the edge with weight 15 is selected i.e. path reaches C.

Vertex C is of degree 4 and the weights of the connected edges are 54, 15, 34, 49

The least of the weights is 15 but it leads to vertex A which is already visited.

Hence, as per the Greedy Algorithm the edge with weight 34 is selected i...
