Answer

Clinic A's standard quota is 2.38. Clinic B's standard quota is 3.30. Clinic C's standard quota is 4.32.

Work Step by Step

We can find the total patient load. total load = 119 + 165 + 216 = 500 We can find the standard divisor. $standard~divisor = \frac{total~load}{number~of~ doctors}$ $standard~divisor = \frac{500}{10}$ $standard~divisor = 50$ The standard divisor is 50. We can find the standard quota for each clinic. Clinic A: $standard~quota = \frac{patient~load}{standard~divisor}$ $standard~quota = \frac{119}{50}$ $standard~quota = 2.38$ Clinic B: $standard~quota = \frac{patient~load}{standard~divisor}$ $standard~quota = \frac{165}{50}$ $standard~quota = 3.30$ Clinic C: $standard~quota = \frac{patient~load}{standard~divisor}$ $standard~quota = \frac{216}{50}$ $standard~quota = 4.32$
