Sorry about the delay in the solution. Had a bunch of exams and submissions yesterday, which took up my attention.
Some terms for those of you that need them-
R^n is the n-dimensional space of real numbers. X and Y would be sets of n-d sets in that dimension.
|x| refers to the distance of the point x from the origin (a list of 0s n times). When the type of distance is not given, you can assume Euclidean Distance.
inf(D) is just the lower bound of D. In our case, you can just assume the lowest distance given the 2 sets. This is not always true, but that’s only a concern when you start getting into infinite sets etc.
