*To*: Haiti mailing list <haiti@lists.webster.edu>*Subject*: #4477: Math and voting (fwd)*From*: Robert Corbett <bcorbett@netcom.com>*Date*: Sun, 2 Jul 2000 11:19:37 -0700 (PDT)*Sender*: owner-haiti@lists.webster.edu

From: oloffsonram <oloffsonram@globelsud.net> To Wharram: 1 voter for 3 senators 2 voters for 2 senators four voters, each for 1 senator Seven voters and eleven votes. Like I said, I'm not good at this stuff but I'll give it a try: Option a)%50 of seven voters equals 3.5 plus one equals 4.5 rounded up to 5. To get to the second round, some one needs five out of the seven voters. %71 of the vote Option b)%50 percent of eleven votes is 5.5, plus one is 6.5, rounded up to seven. To get to the second round all seven voters have to vote for the candidate. One hundred percent of the voters. Option c) eleven votes; estimate the number of voters by dividing by three(# of candidates). 3.66 voters rounded up to 4. Half plus one equals 3. Three votes to get you to the second round. 3 out of eleven or %27. Option d) seven voters, estimate three votes each, equals 21 votes. One half of 21 plus one equals 11.5, rounded up to twelve. Twelve votes gets you to the second round. Eleven votes were cast. Option e) none of the above Now I'm sure there are plenty of other options and I'm not sure which one was chosen by the varying participants but it sure is confusing to me and I would hate to explain it to someone in Creole. Perhaps Mr Kozyn can give us a hand one more time and explain to us which option is the "correct" one. Richard Morse
