Hotel Management A company operates four resorts. The CEO of the company decides to use the Hamilton method to appartion 115 new LCD television sets the resorts based on the number of guest rooms at each resort.

a. If the number of television sets to be apportioned by the Hamilton method increases from 115 to 116, will the Alabama paradox occur?

b. If the number of television sets to be apportioned by the Hamilton method increases from 116 to 117, will the Alabama paradox occur?

c. If the number of television sets to be apportioned by the Hamilton method increases from 117 to 118, will the Alabama paradox occur?

To determine

**(a)**

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

**Given Information:**

Resort | | | | |

Number of guest rooms. | | | | |
