A small country consists of seven states; there are 189 seats in the legislature that need to be apportioned among the seven states; and the population of each state is shown,

State A: 1283
State B: 2374
State C: 2725
State D: 2155
State E: 1592
State F: 2511
State G: 2017

Find the standard quota asked for State C.

Okay, I have two answers that I think can be the right one. The first one I got 35.14

The second one that I got was 5982.39. Would any of these two be the right answer?

  1. How could 5982.39 be right? There are only 189 seats.

    Did you see my answer yesterday?

  3. Yes, I did see it. I guess I misunderstood. I take the total population which is 14657 and divide it by 2725 (for C). When I it equal, I get 5.3787155.. Do I take 5.3787155 and multiply it by 189? If so, I get 1016.577724... If I am not doing it right, what am I doing wrong?

    Thanks

  4. 2725 / 14657 = 0.1859 = 18.6%

    189 * 0.1859 = 35 seats
