Clark and Lois ran for class president. Clark received 100 fewer votes than Lois. If Clark had received twice as many votes(and Lois had received the same amount), he would have won by 122 votes. How many votes were cast in the election, assuming that no one else received any votes?

  • Math - System of Equations -

    C = L-100
    2C = L+122
    C = 222
    L = 322

    So, 544 votes were cast
