## The Bellman-Ford Algorithm

We can use the **Bellman-Ford algorithm** to handle graphs with negative weights. It replaces Dijkstra's method of greedy selection with an alternative approach of iterating across every edge in the graph *V – 1* times (where *V* is equal to the total number of vertices) and finding progressively optimal distance values from the source node across each iteration. Naturally, this gives it a higher asymptotic complexity than Dijkstra's algorithm, but it also allows it to produce correct results for graphs that Dijkstra's algorithm would misinterpret. The following exercise shows how to implement the Bellman-Ford algorithm.

### Exercise 32: Implementing the Bellman-Ford Algorithm (Part I)

In this exercise, we will work with the basic Bellman-Ford algorithm to find the shortest distance in a graph with negative weights. Let's get started:

- First, set up your code by including the necessary libraries (as well as the
**namespace std**for convenience):#include...
