Chapter 8: The Road Home

1) How many characters received less than 10% of the votes in their group?
2) How many characters in Arena 5 received more than 20% of the votes?
3) Let y% = max{vote % in Arena 1} and let S = {x > y | x is a integer}. What is infimum{S}?

Bonus question #3 is worth something special. Wikipedia can be your friend.

1. 7 (yay decreasing numbers!)
2. 3 (yay increasing numbers!)
3. 17 (yay only answer that is remotely statistical!)

Yay wild guesses!

@imoutan: #3 is asking you to round what you think is the highest vote total of arena 1 to a whole number and add 1 to it. Or just copy an answer prior to KS's hint, since the correct answer is one of their choices.
