Its discrete mathematics. Its interesting and different than regular math
I would have to know how one who has the most votes not necessarily wins, and what makes a win if not by majority of votes I believe
Yeah, it is. It takes simple math, but adds politics to the mix. So I didn't, but I hope you know your American voting system.
yes and no lol
I hate that they make it voting for math class like it sounds and looks like a simple math problem but when u actually do it its like whatttt.
so it's simply a case of the candidate A gets 8 votes, candidate B gets 6 votes and candicate C gets 5 votes...
then candidate C is eliminated and the votes for candidate C are distributed between A and B after looking at the 2nd preferences...
so if 5 people voted 1 for candidate C
if 4 or more of those 5 people voted for candidate B, then B wins the election
if 4 voted B as 2nd preference the count is A = 9 and B = 10
if 4 voted B as 2nd preference the count is A = 8 and B = 11
hope it makes sense
But thats the twist is because 19 is the number of total voters, majority has to be 10 or more for one of the candidates :/ @campbell_st
no the question says a candidate has a majority of 1st preference votes.... not a majority of all votes..
so if candidate A gets 8 values and B 6 votes, then A has the majority of 1st preference votes.
ohhhhh. Thank you so much!!!
but borda count looks at allocating points
1 point for a last place vote, 2 points for a 2nd place vote and 3 for a 1st place vote
here is an explanation and example I just found
