so it is a ranking system based on the distribution of votes based on what I read, there are different ways to have the maximum points n, n-1 or percentage based on ranking.

apparently this is not a one-system of counting this is an example of the simple borda count and it could get more complex based on different distributions http://www.ctl.ua.edu/math103/Voting/borda.htm

out of 5 total the 1st place candidates get *5 on the first place votes. so if 1st place had 7 votes youd multiply it by 5

so since there is only one group of 30 voters, you only multiply the winner (1st place) by the number of candidates and the number of voters.

I get that but i just dont get the question being asked idk how to do it

30 voters are not stratified or grouped so we treat them as one group 5 candidates x 30 voters = maximum points that can be gained

we can probably investigate a lower number of voters and candidates to show you the concept

so 150?
