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?
