I need to understand how to do the problem and not the answer.

P.S. bobpursley, no offense but I didn't understand what your response meant. That information I already know but I need to know how to do the problem to get 213 as the answer.

Anida won the class election by margin of 5-3. She received 355 votes. How many votes did the other candidates get? Answer:213

  • Math -

    Another way to solve this problem is to set up a proportion.

    5 / 3 = 355 / x

    Cross multiply:

    5x = 1065
    x = 213
