Using the data in Check Your Progress 3 on page 215. list all blocking coalitions.

To determine

list all blocking coahtions.

**Given Information:**

The four members,

**Concept used:**

Apply the Banzhalf power index.

**Calculation:**

Winning coalition | Number of votes | Critical Voters |

â€ƒâ€ƒ | â€ƒâ€ƒ | â€ƒâ€ƒ |

â€ƒâ€ƒ | â€ƒâ€ƒ | â€ƒâ€ƒ |

â€ƒâ€ƒ | â€ƒâ€ƒ | â€ƒâ€ƒ |

â€ƒâ€ƒ | â€ƒâ€ƒ | â€ƒâ€ƒ |

â€ƒâ€ƒ | â€ƒâ€ƒ | â€ƒâ€ƒ |

â€ƒâ€ƒ | â€ƒâ€ƒ | None |

Using the

Consider

Winning coalition | Number of votes | Critical Voters |

â€ƒâ€ƒ | â€ƒâ€ƒ â€ƒâ€ƒ | â€ƒâ€ƒ |
