## Give each state one representative. Use the Huntington-Hill method with a = 1 to determine the state that receives the next representative. The Calculator Note on page 173 will help. With the populations stored in Li. enter 2nd  LI  x 2 ÷ 2 STO   2nd L2 ENTER   . Now scroll through L2 to find the largest number.

To determine

Find the largest number by the scroll through L2.

### Explanation of Solution

Given:

The population stored in L1 ,enter 2ndL1x2/2STO2ndL2ENTER

Calculation:

Given: use the Huntington-Hill method with a=1.

Use the Huntington-Hill method.
