```							Let P be the point as (x, x).then PA = root((x-3)^2 + (x-4)^2))and PB = root((x-4)^2 + (x-13)^2)PA + PB => root((x-3)^2 + (x-4)^2)) +  root((x-4)^2 + (x-13)^2)Now to minimize it the whole expression should be equal to zero.that is (x-3)^2= 0 and (x-4)^2 = 0 and (x-13)^2 = 0Hence, x = 3 and x = 4 and x = 13Since only first option is the multiple of 13.it would be the answer.	option.
