Planners have estimated the following models for the AM Peak Hour

Where:

You are also given the following data

Variable | Dakotopolis | New Fargo |
---|---|---|

10000 | 15000 | |

8000 | 10000 | |

3000 | 5000 | |

2000 | 1500 |

B. Normalize the number of person trips so that the number of person trip origins = the number of person trip destinations. Assume the model for person trip origins is more accurate.
