# Building Inspectors A city apportions 34 building inspectors among three regions according to their populations. The following table shows the present population of each region. a. Use the Hamilton method to apportion the inspectors. b. After a year the regions have the following populations. Region A has an increase in population of 442, which is an increase of 3.03%. Region B has an increase in population of 103, which is an increase of 3.10%. Region C has an increase in population of 121, which is an increase of 0.40%. If the inspectors are reapportioned using the Hamilton method, will the population paradox occur? Explain.
