19.In an election the defeated candidate got 47% votes and he defeated by300 votes. How many votes did the winning candidate get?​

Let the total number of votes be x.

The number votes the defeated candidate got was 47x/100.

The winning candidate got 100-47 = 53% votes.

So the number of votes that the winning candidate got is 53x/100.

The winning candidate got 300 votes more than defeated candidate.


47x/100 + 300 = 53x/100

300 = 53x - 47x /100

300 = 6x/100

30000 = 6x

x = 30000/6

x = 5000

Therefore total number of votes is 5000.
