Five Methods of Apportionment

The applet below serves as a calculator for the five methods of apportionment, discussed elsewhere: Hamilton's, Jefferson's, Adams', Webster's, and Huntington-Hill's. Compared with the earlier version, the applet has a virture of combining the five mettods under a single umbrella for ease of comparison. The instructions for using the applet are available on a separate page and can also be read under the first tab directly in the applet.
