Technology A company has four offices. The president of the company uses the Hamilton method to apportion 66 new computer printers among the offices based on the number of employees at each office.

a. If the number of printers to be apportioned by the Hamilton method increases from 66 to 67, will the Alabama paradox occur? Explain.

b. If the number of printers to be apportioned by the Hamilton method increases from 67 to 68, will the Alabama paradox occur? Explain.

To determine

**(a)**

**To Explain:**

If the number of printers to be apportioned by the Hamilton method increases from

**Given Information:**

Office | | | | |

Number of employees | | | | |

Apportionment of printers | | | | |

**Concept used:**

Alabama paradox exists if there is a loss of printers in any office.

**Calculation:**

Since, computer printers increases from

Therefore,

Now in Hamilton method divide each enrollment by standard divisor to get a quotient and standard quota.

Office | Number of Employees | Quotient | Standard quota | Number of Computer printers |

| | | | |

| | | | |

To determine

**(b)**

**To Explain:**

If the number of printers to be apportioned by the Hamilton method increases from
