A certain city with population of 132,000 is to be divided into 11 voting districts, and no district is to have a population that is more than 10 percent greater than the population of any other district. What is the minimum possible population that the least populated district could have?
A certain city with a population of 132,000 is to be divided into 11 voting districts is to have a populationn that is more than 10% greater than the population of any other district. What is the minimum possible population that the least populated district could have?
10,700 10,800 10,900 11,000 12,000
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.

10,700 10,800 10,900 11,000 12,000
The question doesn't seem to complete/correct... guess it is 11 voting districts is to have a population that is not more than 10% greater than the population of any other district.

A. 10,700 B. 10,800 C. 10,900 D. 11,000 E. 11,100
As "no district is to have a population that is more than 10 percent greater than the population of any other district", then the populations of 11 districts should be in the range: \(x\) and \(1.1x\).
So we want to minimize \(x\). To minimize \(x\) we should make only one district to have that # of population (minimum possible) and the rest 10 districts to have \(1.1x\) # of population (maximum possible).
