niks18 HatakekakashiIs my interpretation of second sentence correct?
Fraction means Numerator / Denominator
where
Numerator = Additional votes needed to make grand total as 50%
(she already had 45% hence she needs 5% more) or \(\frac{5}{100}\)
Denominator = Total of OTHER votes (55%) or \(\frac{55}{100}\)
Hence ans = \(\frac{5}{100}\) * \(\frac{100}{55}\)
or \(\frac{1}{11}\)
Hi
adkikaniYes your approach is correct. Just to simplify what you did here, is that you assumed total votes to be 100, so the votes in favor becomes 45 and other becomes 55
now you need 5 votes to reach 50, and this 5 has to come from 55 other votes i.e 5/55=1/11
