Suppose the Borda method used in Exercise 1 of this Excursion assigned 25 points for first, 5 points for second, and 0 points for third place. Does this alter the preferences you found in Exercise 1?

To determine

To determine whether the changed points assignment alter the preferences ranking from part one.

**Given information:**

New points assignment:

25 points for the first

5 points for the second

0 points for the third

According to chart,

For plain iced tea,

25 first place votes

0 second place votes

35 third place votes

For lemon iced tea,

15 first place votes

45 second place votes

0 third place votes

For raspberry iced tea,

20 first place votes

15 second place votes

25 third place votes

According to the points assignment total points for each iced tea,
