Building Cell Towers in Martian Outpost
Mission OverviewMartian Outpost
Government officials of the new Martian outpost are determining how many cell towers are required to cover the needs of their residents. Houses within 4 kilometers of each cell tower can receive cell coverage. How many cell towers should they build and where?
Notes and Requirements
- Each unit on the map represents 1 km
- Each house represents a small neighborhood with 20-30 households.
- Residents have written to the governor that they prefer cell towers be built at least 1 km away from their neighborhood.
