What is the meaning of the standard divisor in the context of this exercise? b. Use the Hamilton method to determine the number of computers to be apportioned to each division. c. If the computers are to be apportioned using the Jefferson method, explain why neither 86 nor 87 can be used as a modified standard divisor. Explain why 86.5 can be used as a modified standard divisor. d. Explain why the modified standard divisor - used in the Jefferson method cannot be larger than the standard divisor. e. Use the Jefferson method to determine the number of computers to be apportioned to each division. Is this apportionment in violation of the quota rule? f.
