The Mathematics Department is holding an election for department
chair. Each member ranks the candidates from first to third. The
preference table below shows the results of the ballots with
candidates Clark (C), Jones (J), and Smith (S). I had to attach the table in Wordpad because the format when directly posted messed the table up.
Determine the winner using the Borda count method and if the winner
received a majority of first place votes.
I think the answer is Smith; No I reworked the problem last night.
Here is the work I done to get the answer Smith;No.
When I added up all the numbers above for a total.
Smith has the majority of votes, but from the chart he does not have
the majority of first place votes though. So I got the answer Smith;No.M
