Recreation A company is planning its annual summer retreat and has asked its employees to rink live different choices of recreation in order of preference. The results are given in the table below.

a. Using the plurality voting system, what activity should be planned for the retreat?

b. Use the plurality with elimination method to determine which activity should be chosen.

c. Using the Borda count method of voting, which activity should be planned?

To determine

**(a)**

Using the plurality voting system, what activity should be planned for the retreat?

**Given Information:**

Activity | First Place votes |

Picnic in park | â€ƒâ€ƒ |

Water skiing at a lake | â€ƒâ€ƒ |

Amusement park | â€ƒâ€ƒ |

Riding Horses at a Ranch | â€ƒâ€ƒ |

Dinner cruise | â€ƒâ€ƒ |

**Concept used:**

Since a company is planning its annual summer retreat and has asked its employees to rank five different choices of recreation in order of preference, therefore we use plurality voting system for what activity should be planned for the retreat

To determine

**(b)**

Use the plurality with elimination method to determine which activity should be chosen.

To determine

**(c)**

Using the Borda count method of voting, which activity should be planned?
