an election involving 5 candidates and 30 voters is held and the results of the election are to be determined using the borda count method the maximum number of points a candidate can recieve is???

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.
