Calculate, if possible, the l3anzhaf power index for each voter. Round to the nearest hundredth.

To determine

Calculate. if possible. the Banzhaf power index for each voter. Round to the nearest hundredth.

**Given Information:**

Banzhaf Power indices

**Concept used:**

â€ƒâ€ƒ

**Calculation:**

Consider three people

Therefore,

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 | None |

In above table we look in critical voters' column and find that
