## Find the apportionment that would have resulted if the Hamilton method had been used.

To determine

Find the apportionment that would have resulted if the Hamilton method had been used.

### Explanation of Solution

Given Information:

Hamilton method

Concept used:

Standard Divisor=Total PopulationNumber of Representatives

Calculation:

First calculate standard divisor

Standard Divisor=Total PopulationNumber of Representatives

Therefore,

Standard Divisor= 236841+55540+70835+278514+475327+68705+141822+85533+ 331591+179570+432879+353523+206236+630560+684467+1+2+8+14+2+4+2+10+5+13+10+6+19+2=361592210534437.35

Now make Hamilton table

 State Population Number of Representatives Quotient Standard Quota Number of Representatives Connecticut 236,841 7 23684134437.35≈6.877 6 7 Delaware 55,540 1 5554034437.35≈1.612 1 2 Georgia 70,835 2 7083534437.35≈2.056 2 2 Maryland 278,514 8 27851434437.35≈8.087 8 8 Massachusetts 475,327 14 47532734437.35≈13.802 13 14 Kentucky 68,705 2 6870534437.35≈1.995 1 2 New Hampshire 141,822 4 14182234437
