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

### Explanation of Solution

Given Information:

 School Number of Computers Number of students Rose 26 625 Lincoln 22 532 Midway 26 620 Valley 31 754

Concept used:

District size

D=Total number of StudentsTotal number of computers

Calculation:

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

D=Total number of StudentsTotal number of computers

Therefore,

D=625+532+620+75426+22+26+31=253110524.10

Now calculate state quota by dividing each number of students by D.

 School Number of computer Number of Students State Quota n n+1 Geometric Mean   n(n+1) Number of Computers Rose 26 625 62524
