• What should be the map coordinates of the new factory? Graph the locations of the four factories and the proposed raw material factory.
 
 
• Is the location of the proposed raw material factory where you expected it to be based on the coordinates of the other factories? Why or why not?
 
 
 
• What is the main contributing factor leading to the location of the proposed raw material factory?
 
Support your responses with examples.
 
Cite any sources in APA format.
