Computer Usage The table below shows the number of computers that are assigned to four different schools and the number of students in those schools. Use the Huntington-Hill apportionment principle to determine to which school a new computer should be assigned.

To determine

Use the Huntington-Hill apportionment principle to determine to which school a new computer should be assigned.

**Given Information:**

School | Number of Computers | Number of students |

Rose | | |

Lincoln | | |

Midway | | |

Valley | | |

**Concept used:**

District size

**Calculation:**

In Huntington hill method first we calculate the district size, formula for district size is.

Therefore,

Now calculate state quota by dividing each number of students by

School | Number of computer | Number of Students | State Quota | | | Geometric Mean | Number of Computers |
