rudra13 even i am getting 9 but the answer given by the site is 13 . 17 Jun '13.
3 candidates A,B,C contest an election. A gets at least 40% of all the votes, B gets at least 20 % of votes that A gets and can't get more than 80% of votes that C gets. Find the maximum percentage of votes that A can get.
• 68.96(~ 69%)
• @vinay.04 Correct..Please share your approach too.
• Let A have 100 votes, now we should find the minimum votes B and C can get.
B= 100*0.2= 20 and C= 1.25*20= 25
So total votes (minimum)=145
Percentage of votes for A= 100*100/145 = 68.69
