Consider the following apportionment problem for College Town. Suppose each council member is to represent approximately 2,500 citizens. Use the apportionment plan requested in the problem, assuming there must be 10 representatives.

North: 5,500 2.2
South: 9,000 3.6
East: 6,400 2.56
West: 4,100 & 1.64

Are these correct?

  • ALGEBRA -

    Now you need to round these numbers -- since a region can't have a fraction of a representative.

    Note: It doesn't come out even -- so you're going to have to figure out the proportionate so that there are 10 representatives.
