    Explanation: 1. Through the mineral resources they possessed, such as gold, salt and copper, which were the basis of their livelihood since, through their commercialization, many kingdoms prospered in West Africa.

    2. The trade routes where the slaves would travel, as well as the products that would be exchanged. These routes made it easier for them to have a much more lucrative and productive trade.
