Question

In a certain company, there were five candidates running for President. After the vots were tallied, it turned out that Victor, like in the election, finished in thir place, and david beat him. Greg said that he didn’t come in first, but he also didn’t come in last. Mac in an interview, said that in this election he wasn’t able to win, but at least he was one place hight than his old rival Bill. What place did each candidate come in?

1. Considering the situation described, the classification of the elections is given as follows:
• David came in first place.
• Greg came in second place.
• Victor came in third place.
• Mac came in fourth place.
• Bill came in fifth place.

### How to find the classification of the elections?

We take the situation that is described, and build the classification from it. The classification has the following format:
P1 – P2 – P3 – P4 – P5
With P1 being the first placed candidate, P2 being the second placed candidate, and so on until P5 which is the fifth placed candidate.
From the text given in this problem, we have that:
• Victor finished in third place, and David beat him, hence P3 = Victor, David = P1 or P2.
• Greg didn’t come in first nor in last, hence, considering that Victor is P3, Greg = P2 or P4.
• Mac didn’t win, but he finished higher than Bill, hence, considering that Mac didn’t win and that Victor is P3, Mac = P4, Bill = P5.
• From the bullet points above, we can conclude that David = P1, Greg = P2.
Hence the places of each candidate are given as follows:
• David came in first place.
• Greg came in second place.
• Victor came in third place.
• Mac came in fourth place.
• Bill came in fifth place.
