## Problem 1: Location of Royal Farms

Facilities Planners often must use geometric constructions to identify the location of a place that is of equal distance from 3 other points.
For example, the 3 points represent Eleanor Roosevelt HS (Point A), Parkdale HS (Point B), and DuVal HS (Point C). Royal Farms would like to place a store that is equal distance from the 3 schools. Where should the store be placed?
