Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question! Hope your day is going well!


Since we are looking at the maximum number of points a candidate can receive, we simply find the max number of first place votes a candidate can get.

Each first place vote is worth N points (where N is the number of Candidates).

Well in this case, there are five candidates.

Therefore  N=5.

Let's say a candidate gets 30 first place votes (which there are only 30 voters, and thus the max number of first place votes possible)

Then you take 30 x 5= 150 points total.
