I am recently trying a rating concept in php.
The project is, peoples will post the images of house and ask everyone to rate it as which is beautiful home.
I've placed a 5 rating stars and doing all the vote captures.
But i am confused in picking the right beautiful house.
Calculation i'm used:
Avg. Rating = Sum of rates/count of votes
This is working fine. But i am not sure is this is the correct method. Because, this is had loophole.
house #1 : 5 votes & (1+2+3+4+5)15 rates = Avg Rating = (15/5) is 3.0
house #2 : 1 votes & 5 rate = Avg Rating = (5/1)5.0
based on the above calculation,
house#1 is the highest scorer. is it correct?
but what i'm thinking is. house #1 got major votes(5) and rating(3.0) where as house#1 got (1)vote only and rating(5.0).
So, house#2 is the beautiful house? is this right?
If my theory of logic is right? How do i implement that in my project ?
What calculation i need to place?
Thanks in advance
