    Given : In an assembly election at Surat, the total turnout was

    80% out of which 16% of the total voters on the vot-ing list were declared invalid

    (There were only three contestants, only one winner and the total

    number of voters on the voters’ list was 20000.)

    candidate who came second got 20% of the total voters on the voting list.

    To Find :   percentage votes got by the winner of the election

    Solution:

    total number of voters on the voters’ list was 20000

    total turnout was 80% out  = (80/100) 20000 = 16000

    invalid votes = (16/100) 20000 = 3200

     Valid Votes = 16000 – 3200  = 12800

    Person who came second got  = (20/100) 20000 = 4000

    Maximum votes  by winner <  12800 – 4000  = 8800

    Minimum Votes  >  12800 – (4000 – 4000)

    > 4800

      4800  <  votes  by winner  < 8800

      24 %   < votes  by winner  <  44 %

    percentage votes got by the winner of the election  =  between 24 %  to     44 %   of  voting list.
