Demonstrates the basics of hypothesis testing using the P-value method: find the test statistic which in turn gives us the P-value, then compare the P-value to the level of significance (alpha) to determine whether or not the Null Hypothesis is rejected or not.
PLEASE READ!! I did not make a mistake by showing .0045 as the area (probability) for 2.61. Look carefully at my picture. I have shaded to the **RIGHT** of 2.61, not to the left. If you look up 2.61 on your table and see .9955 your table is assuming you want the area shaded to the LEFT of 2.61. Again, I shaded to the RIGHT of 2.61. I hope that makes sense!

Plurality-with-elimination method of voting is "the MAJORITY of 1st place votes". This means the winner must have more than 1/2 of the 1st place votes. If a candidate does not have a majority of 1st place votes, then the candidate with the least number of 1st place votes gets eliminated, and the rest of the candidates "move up". Now recount the 1st place votes. Keep repeating this process until a candidate eventually has the majority of first place votes.
