Corporate Security The Huntington-Hill apportionment method has been used to apportion 86 security guards among three Corporate office buildings according to the number of employees at each building. See the following table.

The corporation has decided to hire a new security guard.

a. Use the Huntington-Hill apportionment principle to determine to which building the new security guard should be assigned.

b. If another security guard is hired, bringing the total number of guards to 88, to which building should this guard be assigned?

To determine

**(a)**

Use the Huntington-Hill apportionment principle to determine to which building tile new security guard should be assigned.

**Given Information:**

Building | Number of Security Guards | Number of employees |

| | |

| | |

| | |

**Concept used:**

In Huntington hill method first we calculate the district size, formula for district size is

**Calculation:**

In Huntington hill method first we calculate the district size, formula for district size is

Therefore,

Now calculate state quota by dividing each number of employees by

Building | Number of Security Guards | Number of Employees | State Quota | | | Geometric Mean | Security Guard |

| | | |

To determine

**(b)**

If another security guard is hired, bringing the total number of guards to
