At an election there were two candidates.George and Solomon.In that constituency there were.75,000 registered voters 80% of them cast their votes.55%of voters cast their votes to George and the rest voted for Solomon.By how many votes did George win over Solomon?
80% of voters out of 75000 voted, so there were 75000*(80/100) votes in all.
George got 55% and Solomon got 45%. The difference is 55-45=10%.
Calculate 10% of the total number of votes.
