Executives’ Preferences A company with offices across the country will hold its annual executive meeting in one of four locations. All of the executives were asked to rank the locations in order of preference. The results are shown in the table below.

** Use the pairwise comparison method to determine which location should be chosen.**

To determine

Use the pairwise comparison method to determine which location should be chosen.

**Given Information:**

Rankings | |||||

New York | | | | | |

Dallas | | | | | |

Los Angeles | | | | | |

Atlanta | | | | | |

Number of vote: | | | | |

**Concept used:**

**Calculation:**

Create a table to keep track of each of the head-to-head comparisons. Before we begin note that a matchup between, say, New York and Dallas s same as the matchup between Dallas and New York. Therefore we will shade the duplicate cell and the cell between the same locations. This is shown below

Versus | New York | Dallas | Los Angeles | Atlanta |

New York | ||||

Dallas | ||||

Los Angeles | ||||
