A classroom contained an equal number of boys and girls. Eight girls left to play hockey, leaving twice as many boys as girls in the classsroom. What was the original number of students present?

32 students?

In a recent election at the Dr. John Hugh Gillis High School, Susie Cook received 542 votes, Greg MacDonald received 430 votes and Travis Austen received 130 votes. If 90% of those eligible to vote did so, what was the number of eligible voters?

1224 eligible voters?

I think these are correct but I want to make sure. Thanks!
