This one has got me foxed. Please can someone help.....?!
o Twenty five 'voters' in a voting contest
o Each with 8 votes to cast - for now we'll assume all voters use all votes
o Sixteen nominees from which to cast (choose) the 8 votes
o The 8 nominees with the most votes - in rank order, would be the 'winners'
o So on the basis that each nominee has, therefore, a potential maximum of 25 votes that could be received, and a minimum of 0 votes
o What is a likely number of votes that would give x% confidence of being selected?
Extension to the brainteaser: what if 5 voters only voted with 5 votes - what is the impact on the odds
