For a motorist there are three ways going from City A

to City C. By way of bridge the distance is 20 miles

and toll is $0.75. A tunnel between the two cities is

a distance of 10 miles and toll is $1.00 for the

vehicle and driver and $0.10 for each passenger. A

two-lane highway without toll goes east for 30 miles

to city B and then 20 miles in a northwest direction

to City C. 

1. Which is the shortest route from B to C
