    TIFF!!! I’M SO CONFUSED!! the hw reading ends in the middle of a sentence! was there supposed to be another page?? and also the hw asks what city is farthest east on the map but there is no compass on the map (if there is i cant see/find it)…

      oh yeah. i noticed that. i’m not sure what happened to the rest of the sentence but don’t worry about it. there isn’t another page. and the city farthest east? you are right that there should be a compass, however, you can assume in that north is towards the top of the page.
