# Gerrymandering, Efficiency Gap Formula [closed]

I have a problem in which I have two parties. Party 1 is Purple. Party 2 is Yellow. There are a total of 135 votes. Purple has 75 of them while yellow has 60. There are 9 districts total. Each district has to have 15 votes in each of them, making votes in each district even. I'm supposed to set up the districts to maximize the number of Yellow-majority districts with efficiency gap 7%. I can't figure out how to arrange it to be this way. Any help?

• Since 7% is the cutoff efficiency gap to be considered gerrymandering, it seems like your teacher is trying to make you work out how gerrymandered something can be without being recognized as gerrymandered by the efficiency gap system. In any case, we don't do homework for you. Try some stuff and see what you can get. I don't think he has onecorrect solution in mind. Commented Oct 4, 2023 at 23:57
• I’m voting to close this question because we're not doing your homework for you.
