Question : 1 [SSC CHSL 2014]
At an election there were two candidates. A candidate got 38% of votes and lost by 7200 number of votes. The total number of valid votes were
a) 16200
b) 13000
c) 30000
d) 13800
Answer »Answer: (c)
Number of valid votes = x (let)
(62 – 38)% of x = 7200
$x × 24/100 = 7200$
$x = {7200 × 100}/24$ = 30000
Using Rule 26,
Total number of votes
= ${50 × 7200}/{(50  38)}$
= 50 × 600 = 30000
Question : 2 [SSC CGL TierI 2016]
In an election, a candidate secures 40% of the votes but is defeated by the only other candidate by a majority of 298 votes. Find the total number of votes recorded.
a) 1470
b) 1580
c) 1530
d) 1490
Answer »Answer: (d)
Total votes polled = x
According to the question,
(60 – 40)% of x = 298
$x × 20/100 = 298$
$x/5$ = 298
x = 298 × 5 = 1490
Question : 3 [SSC CGL Prelim 2004]
In an election between two candidates, the candidate getting 60% of the votes polled, is elected by a majority of 14,000 votes. The number of votes polled by the winning candidate is
a) 42,000
b) 28,000
c) 46,000
d) 32,000
Answer »Answer: (a)
Difference of percentage of votes = 60% – 40% = 20%
20% of total votes = 14000
60% of total votes = $14000/20 × 60$ = 42000
Question : 4 [SSC CGL 2012]
In an election there were only two candidates. One of the candidates secured 40% of votes and is defeated by the other candidate by 298 votes. The total number of votes polled is
a) 1490
b) 745
c) 1500
d) 1460
Answer »Answer: (a)
Let votes polled = x
$x × ({60  40}/100)$ = 298
$x × 1/5 = 298$
x = 298 × 5 = 1490
Using Rule 26,
If a candidate got A% votes in a poll and he won or defeated by 'x' votes, then,
what was the total no. of votes which was cast in the poll?
∴ Total no. of votes = ${50 × x}/{50  A}$
Total number of votes = ${50 × 298}/{50  40} = 1490$
Question : 5 [SSC CPO SI 2016]
In an election 10% of the voters on the voters' list did not cast their votes and 60 voters cast their ballot papers blank. There were only two candidates. The winner was supported by 47% of all the voters in the list and he got 308 votes more than his rival. The number of voters on the list was
a) 4575
b) 3600
c) 6028
d) 6200
Answer »Answer: (d)
Total voters in the list = x
Votes got by the winner = ${47x}/100$
Votes got by the loser
=$x  x/10  60  {47x}/100$
= ${9x}/10  {47x}/100  60$
= ${90x  47x}/100  60$
= ${43x}/100  60$
According to the question,
${47x}/100  {43x}/100 + 60 = 308$
${4x}/100 = 308 – 60 = 248$
$x = {248 × 100}/4 = 6200$
