Optimal Host

Have you seen this question before?

Let’s say we have a group of NN friends represented by a list of dictionaries where each value is a friend name and their location on a three dimensional scale of (x,y,zx, y, z). The friends want to host a party but want the friend with the optimal location (least distance to travel as a group) to host it.

Write a function pick_host to return the friend that should host the party.



friends = [
{'name': 'Bob', location: (5,2,10)},
{'name': 'David', location: (2,3,5)},
{'name': 'Mary', location: (19,3,4)},
{'name': 'Skyler', location: (3,5,1)},

def optimal_host(friends) -> 'David'
