total =190
J+a+S=190
j+A=190-s.....................(1)

J=2S+6............(2)
A=3S-8...............(3)

adding (2) and (3)
j+a=5S-2
equate with (1)
5s-2=190-s
s=32
j=70

In a class election, 190 votes were cast of three candidates. Jake received 6 more votes than twice as many as Simon received, while Adam received 8 votes less than three times as many as Simon. How many votes did Jake receive?

(A) 32
(B) 88
(C) 70
(D) 80
(E) 90


We can create the equations:

J + S + A = 190

and

J = 6 + 2S

and

A = 3S - 8

Substituting, we have:

6 + 2S + S + 3S - 8 = 190

6S = 192

S = 32

Thus, Jake received J = 6 + 2S = 6 + 64 = 70 votes.

Answer: C
