Appendix 1 The Huntington - Hill Method

2
The Huntington-Hill method is easily compared to Webster’s method, although the way we round up or down is quite different In Webster’s method, we round in the conventional way, so the cutoff for Webster’s method is.5 (halfway between the modified lower quota and modified upper quota)

3
In the Huntington-Hill Method the cutoff is not 0.5, but rather it is found by: H = where L is the modified lower quota If the quota is below H, round down If the quota is above H, round up

4
Huntington-Hill Method 1) Find a divisor D such that when each state’s modified quota is rounded according to the Huntington-Hill rounding rules, the total is the exact number of seats to be apportioned 2) Apportion to each state its modified quota, rounded using the Huntington-Hill rules.
