### What is a quorum in a condominium?

From Wikipedia, the definition of a quorum is:
"A quorum
is the minimum number of members of a deliberative assembly (a body
that uses parliamentary procedure, such as a legislature) necessary
to conduct the business of that group." [more under Discussion]
In a condominium, your governing documents are specific about
the number of people required to make up a quorum, based on the
total number of people involved in condominium ownership.
A quorum of the board of five persons, for example, is three
persons. A quorum of owners is the number of owners -- based on
percentage of allocated interests owned -- and is usually more than
50% of total ownership.

###### Asked in Algebra

### What is the mathematical formula for quorum?

It depends on three variables:
x = total number of members
y = percentage of members required to determine z:
z = number more or less than y required to make a quorum.
As an example, let's say we have a membership of 27. The number
required to have a quorum is 3 more than 40% of the membership. So,
here the quorum would be:
0.4 * 27 + 3 = 13.8, which would normally be rounded up to 14.
Rounding, using either the ceiling or floor function, can also be
another variable in the equation.
Most quorums are simpler than this. If a quorum is 1 more than
50% of membership, then the formula is:
Floor((0.5*x)+1)
where x is the number of total members.

senate, the senate is 2 members from each state and it does not

represenatives make up the 535 members of the congress.
