Part One

Blue Devil Airlines, a start-up airline company, has created the new DevilExpress Plane. They will start with sixty-five flights per month on three routes. Those routes are: Chicago to New York, Chicago to Los Angeles, and Chicago to Miami. They anticipate 4010 passengers flying from Chicago to New York, 3150 flying from Chicago to Los Angeles, and 1840 flying from Chicago to Miami.

The flight from Chicago New York had the largest amount of routes with 29 after apportionment. The flight from Chicago to Los Angeles had the second largest with 23 routes. The flight from Chicago to Miami received 13 routes after apportionment. It is expected by the airline that the majority of people flying with them will be traveling to New York or Los Angeles.

Part Two

The US House of Representatives has decided to increase its membership by one. You will be assigned one of five 10-state regions to analyze to determine which state in that region should receive the extra representative.

The first time the seats were apportioned they came to a total of 94, I needed to add one to make it 95. I modified the divisor to 700000 to reapportion the seats. After the reapportion North Carolina received the extra seat to bring their total of seat to 14.
