Airline Industry The following table shows the numbers of ticket agents at each airports for a small airline company. The company has hired *35* new security employees who are to be apportioned among the airports based on the number of ticket agents at each airport.

a. Use the Hamilton method to apportion the new security employees among the airports.

b. Use the Jefferson method to apportion the new security employees among the airports.

c. Use the Webster method to apportion the new security employees among the airports.

To determine

**(a)**

Use the Hamilton method to apportion the new security employees among the airports.

**Given Information:**

Airport | Number of ticket agents |

Newark | |

Cleveland | |

Chicago | |

Philadelphia | |

Detroit | |

Total | |

**Concept used:**

**Calculation:**

Since there is a total

Therefore,

Under the Hamilton plan, divide the enrollments of each division by the standard divisor and round the quotient down to a whole number

Airport | Enrollments | Quotient | Standard Quota |

Newark | | | |

Cleveland | | | |

Chicago | | | |

Philadelphia | | | |

Detroit | | |

To determine

**(b)**

Use the Jefferson method to apportion the new security employees among the airports.

To determine

**(c)**

Use the Webster method to apportion the new security employees among the airports.
