A power house, P, is on one bank of a straight river 200 m wide,
and a factory, F, is on the opposite bank 400m downstream from P.
The cable has to be taken across the river,
under water at a cost of $6/m.
On land the cost is $3/m. Tell the least cost with shortest angle?
NOTE: path should be chosen so that the cost is minimized
