## Thinking Mathematically (6th Edition)

We can use the modified divisor $d = 7.82$ to find the modified quota of each state. State A: $modified~quota = \frac{population}{d}$ $modified~quota = \frac{424}{7.82}$ $modified~quota = 54.22$ State B: $modified~quota = \frac{population}{d}$ $modified~quota = \frac{664}{7.82}$ $modified~quota = 84.91$ State C: $modified~quota = \frac{population}{d}$ $modified~quota = \frac{892}{7.82}$ $modified~quota = 114.07$ State D: $modified~quota = \frac{population}{d}$ $modified~quota = \frac{1162}{7.82}$ $modified~quota = 148.59$ To find each state's apportioned seats using Jefferson's method, we round the modified quota down to the nearest whole number. State A is apportioned 54 seats. State B is apportioned 84 seats. State C is apportioned 114 seats. State D is apportioned 148 seats.
