In the Huntington-Hill method of apportionment, each state is first given one representative and then additional representatives are assigned, one at a time, to the state currently having the highest Huntington-Hill number. This way of implementing the Huntington-Hill apportionment method is time consuming. Another process for implementing the Huntington-Hill apportionment method consists of using a modified divisor and a special rounding procedure that involves the *geometric means* of two consecutive integers. Research this process for implementing the Huntington-Hill apportionment method. Apply this process to apportion 22 new security vehicles to each of the following schools, based on their student populations.

To determine

Determine the value of number of security vehicles.

**Given Information:**

**Concept used:**

**Calculation:**

First we use

School | Number of Students | State Quota | Number of Security vehicales |

Del Mar | | | |

Wheatly | | | |

West | | | |

Mountain View | | | |

Total | |

The total number of representative comes out to be more. So use modified standard divisor as

School | Number of Students | State Quota | Number of Security vehicales |

Del Mar | | | |

Wheatly | | |
