Question

A temporary- help agency wants to open an office in a suburban section of a large city. It has identified five large corporate offices as potential custom-ers. The locations of these offices in miles on an xy coordinate grid for the area are c 1 = ( 4, 4), c 2 = ( 4, 11), c 3 = ( 7, 2), c 4 = ( 11, 11), and c5 = ( 14, 7). The expected demand for temporary help from these customers is weighted as w 1 = 3, w 2 = 2, w 3 = 2, w 4 = 4, and w5 = 1. The agency reimburses employees for travel expenses incurred by their assignments; therefore, recommend a location ( i. e., xy coordinates) for the agency that will minimize the total weighted metropolitan distance for job- related travel.
