Postal Service The table below shows the number of mail carriers and the population for two cities. Spring Valley and Summerville. The postal service is planning to add a new mail carrier to one of the cities. Use the apportionment principle to determine which city should receive the new mail carrier.

To determine

Use the apportionment pnnciple to detemline which city should receive the new mail carrier.

**Given Information:**

City | Number of mail carriers | Population |

Spring valley | | |

Summerville | | |

**Concept used:**

First find the average constituency to calculate unfairness.

**Calculation:**

City | Number of mail carriers | Population | Average constituency |

Spring valley | | | |

Summerville | | | |

First find out the average constituency to calculate absolute unfairness which decide which city the new mail carrier should be assigned,

City | Number of mail carriers | Population | Average constituency |
