Social Workers The following table shows the number of social Workers and the number of cases (the case load) handled by the social workers for two offices. The **number of social** workers for each office was determined by using the Huntington-Hill apportionment method.

A new social worker is to be hired for one of the offices.

a. Use the apportionment principle to determine to which office the social worker should be assigned.

b. Use the Huntington-Hill apportionment principle to determine to which office the new social worker should be assigned. How does this result compare with the result in part a?

c. The results of part b indicate that the new social worker should be assigned to the Valley office. At this moment the Hill Street office has 20 social workers and the Valley office has *25* social workers. Use the Huntington-Hill apportionment principle to determine to which office the ** next** new social worker should be assigned. Assume the case loads remain the same.

To determine

**(a)**

**To find:**

The social worker should be assigned using apportionment principle.

**Given information:**

The following table shows the number of social workers and the number of case (the case load) handles by the social workers for each office was determined by using the Huntington-Hill apportionment method.

A new social worker is to be hired for one of the offices.

**Calculation:**

**First we find the average of original or actual number of social worker assigned.**

Now, we hired one social workers for both office and find new average

To determine

**(b)**

**To find:**

The social worker should be assigned using Huntington-Hill apportionment principle.

To determine

**(c)**

**To find:**

The social worker should be assigned using apportionment principle.
