#4477: Math and voting (fwd)
From: oloffsonram <email@example.com>
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
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.
