## Use the edge-picking algorithm to find a Hamiltonian circuit in the indicated graph.Graph in Exercise 12

To determine

To determine a Hamiltonian circuit in the weighted graph using the edge-picking 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 edge-picking algorithm states to mark the edge that has the smallest weight in the complete graph. Then, the edge with the next smallest weight is marked as long as it does not complete a circuit and does not add a third marked edge to a single vertex. This process continues till no longer an edge can be marked. Then the final edge completing the Hamiltonian circuit is marked.

Here, the least weight in the graph is 4.

Hence, the edge CF having the weight 4 is marked first.

The next least weight in the graph is 5.

Hence, the edge CB having the weight 5 is marked.

The next least weight in the graph is 6...
