population that is 10% greater than the population of any other district..

11000.. 10% of 11000 = 1100.. so the next population will be 12100..
10*12,100 + 11000 = 132000.

There is not mention that population would be different. This is PS and not CR where the number can be from 1 to 12100. When the division is stated and unless a exception is mentioned it is considered an equal distribution/division.
