Problem 1

Part (a)

The diagram of the city and two hospitals is included below. Areas shaded green are closer to hospital 2, and areas shaded purple are closer to hospital 1.

The line separating the regions is perpendicular to the line between H1 and H2, and goes through the midpoint (6,3).
The slope between H1 and H2 is $\frac{9-3}{5-1} = 3/2$, so the slope of the dividing line is -2/3, and therefore the equation is $y=3-2/3(x-6)$, or $x=\frac{-2}{3}y+8$.

Then divide that result by the area of the city.$$D_{avg} = \frac{ \int_0^6 \int_0^{-2/3y+8} \sqrt{(x-3)^2+(y-1)^2} dx dy + \int_0^6\int_{-2/3y+8}^{10} \sqrt{(x-9)^2+(y-5)^2} dx dy}{60}$$Doing the integrals in WolframAlpha:![](1b-1.png)![](1b-2.png)So the average distance is $\frac{100.611 + 62.68}{60} = 2.72$ miles.

Part (b)

To get the average distance, we integrate the distance to the hospital over each region. Then divide that result by the area of the city.

$$D_{avg} = \frac{ \int_0^6 \int_0^{-2/3y+8} \sqrt{(x-3)^2+(y-1)^2} dx dy + \int_0^6\int_{-2/3y+8}^{10} \sqrt{(x-9)^2+(y-5)^2} dx dy}{60}$$

Doing the integrals in WolframAlpha:

So the average distance is $\frac{100.611 + 62.68}{60} = 2.72$ miles.
