I am new to network analyst and I am trying to solve the following problem: I need to find optimal distribution and minimal number of facilities needed to cover 80 % of population of an area with everyone having access to the nearest facility within 10 minutes (that would probably be the specified impedance cutoff). I don't have any candidate facility specified, only the network of roads and distribution of population. Is this possible with location allocation analysis layer, with minimize facilities problem type? Or are there any other possibilities to solve this within Arcgis 10?

I would appreciate your help very much.

Thank you.
