[Query] Presidential election 2017: How are the votes calculated?

Actually, I am not able to relate an article of Hindu with Laxmikanth.

  • I assume Hindu has shown the Value of an MLA vote and Total value of MLA votes same.

  • To have the Total value of MLA votes we need to multiply the Value of an MLA vote with total no of MLAs (4120).

    As per the article

    theek to hai bhai... BTW what's the exact discrepancy between two sources
  • I assume Hindu has shown the Value of an MLA vote and Total value of MLA votes same.

    yes
  • Rather than dividing the Total value of MLA votes [549495 x 4120] by Total number of MPs(776), Hindu has divided the Value of a MLA votes by Total number of MPs ( 549495/776).

  • Hindu has shown 549495 as both Value of an MLA vote as well as the Total value of MLA votes.

    yes
    How is that possible?

    total votes polled were 1090300 acc. to TOI...so Total value of MLA votes remains 549495 ..there is typo from Hindu in heading "Value of an MLA's vote" and shows Total value of all MLA's votes
  • I assume Hindu has shown the Value of an MLA vote and Total value of MLA votes same.

    yes
    How is that possible?
    it's typing error....
