**Devise an algorithm for finding the shortest path between two vertices in a simple connected weighted graph that passes through a specified third vertex.**

The shortest path is f to z together.

**In graph theory, the shortest path problem is the problem of finding a path between two vertices in a graph such that the sum of the weights of its constituent edges is minimized.**

Let us take the shortest path from a to z that passes through say f first of all shortest path from a to f and a shortest path from f to z , then put them together. In order to find shortest path for each of them use Dijkstra’s algorithm.

Hence, put f to z together, to find the shortest path.
