Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so 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, n1 or percentage based on ranking.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0apparently this is not a onesystem 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0out 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so 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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.030 voters are not stratified or grouped so we treat them as one group 5 candidates x 30 voters = maximum points that can be gained

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0we can probably investigate a lower number of voters and candidates to show you the concept
