Using a frequency distribution function, F(q), of B*exp(-A*q), write an
expression for the number of seats possessed by states in the cycle between
consecutive integers a and b. And write an expression for the number of
quotas possessed by states between in the cycle between a and b. Set those
two expressions equal and solve for R, the rounding point in that cycle.
I call it Weighted Webster because, using a uniform frequency distribution,
Webster can be arrived at in that way.
I now propose four methods:
Cycle-Webster
Adjusted-Rounding
Weighted-Webster
