the quick path

I have 3 point on a perimeter of circle.
How I prove/show between every the two point of them there is always short way that the way between the other points?

I think the answer is the distance can be between infinitesimal (close to zero but not zero) to D (D = diameter) between 2 point on the perimeter of the circle.
But
(1) How I prove that when the distance is D, so the distance between every two points (that one is the point of the diameter) is smaller?
(2) How I prove when 3 points are given the segments are follow the triangle inequality?

Can you provide a diagram and state algebraically what you want to prove?

What the blue segment (AB) is the maximum segment on the perimeter of the circle?
What any other segment can't be bigger than AB. For example, the black segment (the AL segment)?

Have you considered AL < AO + OL = AO + OB = AB?

Yes.
It axiom or a theorem?
If it is a theorem, how prove it?

What exactly are you referring to as "it"?

How I prove it by your picture?
It take me a minute to look on the picture.
I think you use Triangle inequality.
But you prove it in another me as a I see.
(1) Can it will be proven triangle quality?
(2) Can you write it in tied up way the step of what you draw?

Applying the triangle inequality theorem to triangle AOL gives AL < AO + OL.

If AB is a diameter of the circle and O is the mid-point of AB, OA, OB and OL are radii of the circle and have the same length.
