Origin: From quorum, genitive plural form of qui, used as standard wording in written commissions.
such a number of the officers or members of any body as is competent by law or constitution to transact business; as, a quorum of the House of Representatives; a constitutional quorum was not present
A quorum is the minimum number of members of a deliberative assembly necessary to conduct the business of that group. According to Robert's Rules of Order Newly Revised, the "requirement for a quorum is protection against totally unrepresentative action in the name of the body by an unduly small number of persons." The term quorum is from a Middle English wording of the commission formerly issued to justices of the peace, derived from Latin quorum, "of whom", genitive plural of qui = "who". As a result, quora as plural of quorum is not a valid Latin formation.
The Nuttall Encyclopedia
the number of the members of a governing body required by law to give legality to any transaction in the name of it.
