The value she places on each attribute however differs according to what type of restaurant she is going to start. If she opens a restaurant in a suburban area of Los Angeles then taste is the most important attribute three times as important as location and two times as important as price. If she opens a restaurant in the Los Angeles metropolitan area then location becomes three times as important as taste and two times as important as price. She is considering two venues respectively a steak restaurant and a pizza restaurant both of which are priced the same. She has rated each attribute on a scale of 1 to 100 for each of the two different types of restaurants. Show all of your calculations and processes.
