## Using the data in Example 1 on page 211, list all blocking coalitions.

To determine

Using the data in Example 1 on page 211, list all blocking coalitions.

### Explanation of Solution

Given Information:

Suppose that the four owners of a company, Ang, Bonhomme, Carmel, and Diaz, own, respectively, 500 shares, 375 shares, 225 shares, and 400 shares. There are a total of 1500 votes; half of this is 750, so the quota is 751. The weighted voting system for this company is (751:500,375,225,400).

Concept used:

A winning coalition must represent at least 751 votes. We will list these coalitions in the table below, in which we use A for Ang, B for Bonhomme, C for Carmel, and D for Diaz.

Calculation:

A winning coalition must represent at least 751 votes. We will list these coalitions in the table below, in which we use A for Ang, B for Bonhomme, C for Carmel, and D for Diaz.

 Winning coalition Number of votes {A,B} 875 {A,D} 900 {B,D} 775 {A,B,C} 1100 {A,B,D} 1275 {A,C,D} 1125 {B,C,D} 1000 {A,B,C,D} 1500

The table is drawn to find out all blocking coalition
