The Hot Dog Stand Location Problem

Author: Daniel Teague, Floyd Bullard

A map shows the walking paths and dormitories in a section of campus and the approximate distances (in 100 feet) between locations. Your roommate has convinced you to open a hot dog stand on weekends at one of the intersections along the walkways. You would like the stand to be as convenient as possible for the students. Where on campus should you set up your stand?
