In a special local election, one candidate received 288 votes less than twice the number of votes of the opponent. How many votes did each candidate receive if the total number of votes in the election is 136,395?

OC=2OP288
OC+OP=136,395

Cole,
I don't understand this equation that you have here?

bobpursley,
Those equations are what the problem states, that is all. OC is the one candiadate, OP is the opposing candidate.
Do you need a tutor? If so, don't wait. Discuss it with your parents. Your teacher may have a list of available tutors.
Waiting to get a tutor until it is too late never solves anything.
