Voting Math Question

timer Asked: Aug 30th, 2015

Question description

Hi there.  I don't really need an explanation, just the answer.  I have a batch of these if you are interested, but need to submit them one at a time because of the program I am using.  Thank you for your help!

An incentive travel program offers customers a free weekend vacation in exchange for sitting through a sales presentation. Currently the options are Disneyland (D), Epcot Center (E), SeaWorld (S), and the Flamingo Las Vegas casino (F). Customers are asked to rate each location from most to least desirable, and the results are tabulated.

Number of votes
First choice
Second choice
Third choice
Fourth choice

Using the pairwise comparison method, Epcot is the most desirable location. If the travel company loses its contract with SeaWorld, and the votes are recounted after SeaWorld is eliminated, is the irrelevant alternatives criterion violated?


The irrelevant alternatives criterion 

A: is violated.

B: is not violated.
