There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:

In a mayoral election, Candidate X received 1/3 more votes than Candidate Y, and Candidate Y received 1/4 fewer votes than Candidate Z. If Candidate Z received 24,000 votes, how many votes did Candidate X receive?

Each week we'll be posting several questions from The Official Guide For GMAT® Quantitative Review, 2ND Edition and then after couple of days we'll provide Official Answer (OA) to them along with a slution.

We'll be glad if you participate in development of this project: 1. Please provide your solutions to the questions; 2. Please vote for the best solutions by pressing Kudos button; 3. Please vote for the questions themselves by pressing Kudos button; 4. Please share your views on difficulty level of the questions, so that we have most precise evaluation.

Let the total no of votes received by z be 12 ( LCM of 3 and 4)

Y received 9 ( 1/4 fewer votes than Candidate Z.)

X received 12 (1/3 more votes than Candidate Y)

So, that means both X and Z received same number of votes.

Hence X received 24,000 votes!! _________________
