the 1st guy if he gets 145 votes, and the rest get 144 votes that= 721. Is that right?

consider the worst case scenario, the votes are split (almost evenly) across the candidates

since 721 is not divisible by 5, one candidate must receive more votes than the others what is the minimum number of votes, that could achieve plurality?

Yeah, that's right, 145 is the minimum number of votes required to win the election

In other words (assuming all votes count), you cannot win the election if you get less than 145 votes. NB: just because you get 145 votes, doesn't guarantee victory
