Hospital Interns The table below shows the number of interns and the average number of patients admitted each day at two different hospitals. The hospital administrator is planning to add a new intern to one of the hospitals. Use the apportionment principle to determine which hospital should receive the new intern.

To determine

Use the apportionment principle to determine which hospital should receive the new intern.

**Given Information:**

Hospital location | Number of interns | Average number of patients admitted per day |

South Coast Hospital | | |

Rainer Hospital | | |

**Concept used:**

**Calculation:**

First calculate the average constituency

Hospital location | Number of interns | Average number of patients admitted per day | Average constituency |

South Coast Hospital | | | |

Rainer Hospital | | | |

Now, suppose one intern added to each hospital then change in average co
