The distance from Capital City to Little Village is 51 miles.  From Capital City to Yourtown is 37 miles, from Mytown to Little Village is 8 miles, and from Yourtown to Mytown is \(6\) miles.  How far is it from Mytown to Capital City?

C to Y is 37 and  C to L is 51  so the minimum distance possible between Y and L is 14

 

Now M to Y is 6 and  and M to L is 8 .   

 I already know that YL is a minimum of 14

So that means that   MYL must be collinear points  ( all on one line.

 

this means that C, Y, M, L are all  collinear.

 

You can finish it.

 

Here is a pic.
