## Transcription

2 The Pink Party won 8 of these constituencies and the Black Party won the other. Let's look at the numbers we're using and where they come from... Round 1 Spotty 85,000 (0+1) = 85,000 Striped 52,000 (0+1) = 52,000 In the regional vote, the Pink Party got 99,000 votes. It gained 8 constituency in the area that makes the region. One is added to 8 to make the divisor for the Pink Party. The D'Hondt formula for the Pink Party for round 1 is 99,000 (8+1). Their result for round 1 is 11,000. The Spotty Party got 85,000 votes in the regional ballot. They didn't win any of the 9 constituencies in the region so the D'Hondt formula for them is 85,000 (0+1). Their result for round 1 is 85,000 The Black Party has 47,500 votes from the regional ballot and they won 1 constituency in the region. The formula for the Black Party is 47,500 (1+1). Their result for round 1 is 23,750 The Striped, Purple and White Parties got 52,000, 23,000 and 5,250 votes. None of these parties won a constituency in the region, so their regional votes are divided by 0+1, giving them 52,000, 23,000 and 5,250. So the result from round 1 is... The Spotty Party has the largest number after the D Hondt formula has been applied, so this Party gets 1 of the regional. This formula would be used 7 times in 7 rounds to elect 7 regional. Let s recap: the D Hondt formula is the number of regional votes divided by the number of the party has in the region + 1. In Round 2, the Spotty Party s divisor will change as they won an MSP in Round 1. So, let's move on to Round 2 In round 2, the same formula is applied, but the Spotty Party divisor changes Round 2 Spotty 85,000 (1+1) = 42,500

3 Striped 52,000 (0+1) = 52,000 Striped Wins So, let s move on to Round 3 In Round 3, the same formula is applied again, this time however the Striped Party divisor changes. Round 3 Spotty 85,000 (1+1) = 42,500 Striped 52,000 (1+1) = 26,000 Spotty Wins So, let s move on to Round 4 In Round 4, the same formula is applied again, this time however the Spotty Party divisor changes. Round 4 Spotty 85,000 (2+1) = 28,333 Striped 52,000 (1+1) = 26,000 Spotty Wins So, let s move on to Round 5 In Round 5, the Spotty party divisor changes again

4 Round 5 Spotty 85,000 (3+1) = 21,250 Striped 52,000 (1+1) = 26,000 Striped Wins So, let s move on to Round 6 In Round 6, the Striped Party divisor changes. Round 6 Spotty 85,000 (3+1) = 21,250 Striped 52,000 (2+1) = 17,333 Black Wins So, let s move on to Round 7 In Round 7, the Black Party divisor changes. Round 7 Spotty 85,000 (3+1) = 21,250 Black 47,500 (2+1) = 15,833 Striped 52,000 (2+1) = 17,333 Purple Wins
