FermatPoint

Equilateral triangles are based on the sides of triangle *ABC*, and lines pairing vertices as shown concur in the point *F*. When dragging point *P* closer to *F*, watch the sum of distances decrease to the minimal value obtained when *P = F*.
Can you drag P so that the three angles surrounding it become equal?
