# Percentage - Excercise 2 - Q29

## Question

i. In an election only two candidates contested 20% of the voters did not vote and 120 votes were declared as invalid. The winner got 200 votes more than his opponent thus he secured 41% votes of the total voters on the voter list. Percentage votes of the defeated candidate out of the total votes casted is:

• 47.50%
• 41.00%
• 38.00%
• 45.00%
Therefore ${(1440)\times(3200)\times(100)\frac{}{}}$ = 45%
