In a mayor's race of three candidates, Isaac received 4,000 votes, Benoit received 6000 votes and Rene received 1/3 of the votes. What was the total number of votes cast in the election?

Can anyone explain this. It seems like info is missing!

  • math -

    There are only three candidates.
    Isaac 4000 votes
    Benoit 6000 votes
    Rene 1/3 of all the votes.

    Therefore Isaac and Benoit together got (1-1/3)=2/3 of all the votes.
    Total number of votes =(4000+6000)/(2/3)
    =?
