A state legislature had a total of 96 members. The members who did not vote on a certain bill consisted of 25 who were absent and 3 who abstained. How many of those voting voted for the bill?

(1) Exactly 1/3 of the total membership of the legislature voted against the bill.

(2) The number of Legislators who voted for the bill was 8 more than the total number who were absent or abstained.


I lost somewhere, and need some detail explaination! Thanks!

D

total no of people vote (either for or against) = 96-25-3 = 58

Statement 1 : against = 1/3 * 96 = 32, For = 58-32 = 36...suff
statement 2 : For = 8 + 25 + 3 = 36 ... Suff
