Todd examines the seven census tracts in Mobile, plots the coordinates of the center of each from a map, and looks up the population base in each to use as a weighting. The information gathered appears in the following table. Census Tract Population in Census X, Y Map Coordinates Tract 101 1,800 (26,44) 102 5,000 (25,25) 103 9,500 (57,42) 104 7,200 (52.22) 105 10,000 (76,48) 18,000 (68,20) 106 107 14,000 (90,28) a) The center-of-gravity coordinates for the location of the proposed outlet in Mobile, Alabama should be: x= 66.13 (round your response to two decimal places). y = 30.44 (round your response to two decimal places). b) Census tracts 103 and 105 are each projected to grow by 20% in the next year. The new center-of-gravity coordinates for the location of the proposed outlet in Mobile, Alabama should be: x= (round your response to two decimal places).
