Forest Rangers The table below shows how the average constituency changes when two different national parks. Evergreen State Park and Rust Canyon Preserve, add a new forest ranger.

a. Determine the relative unfairness of an apportionment that gives a new forest ranger to Evergreen rather than to Rust Canyon. Round to the nearest thousandth.

b. Determine the relative unfairness of an apportionment that gives a new forest ranger to Rust Canyon rather than to Evergreen. Round to the nearest thousandth.

c. Using the apportionment principle, determine which national park should receive the new forest ranger.
