|Third candidate received more votes compare than other 2 candidates, so third candidate is winner.|

|50% of 20400 = 10200.
11628-10200 = 1428.
1428*100/20400 = 7.
50+7 = 57.
|Astik Singh said: (Feb 10, 2014)|
|Simply we can judge by given choice that winning percentage should be more than 50%. Which is close to 57%. It will be the answer. It all about practice.|
|Kunal said: (Apr 26, 2014)|
It already mentioned in the question that how much votes did get the winning candidate so there is nothing to worry about.
|Vinus said: (Sep 27, 2014)|
|How we can known that total no vote polled 20400 as in question not mentioned?|
|Vipin Prakash Mishra said: (Nov 1, 2014)|
Total Votes = Sum of Votes of all Party (First party+Second Party+Third Party +.....+n).
But in this question, there are three party.
So add only three party.
|Pratik said: (Sep 15, 2015)|
|11+7+1+0.6+0.6=21. Then 21/2=10. So that is greater than 50%.|

|Thanks for giving short cut @Pratik.|

|Total votes = 1136 + 7636 + 11628 = 20400.
Let % of vote x.
(x/100) * 20400 = 11628.
x = (11628 * 100) / 20400.
x = 57.

|Please, can anyone get me the answer for this question?
In an election, only two candidates contested 20% of the voters did not vote and 120 votes were declared as invalid. The winner got 200 votes more than his opponent thus he secured 41% votes of total voters on the voter list. Percentage votes of the defeated candidate out of total votes cast is?

|Why we should take 11628 as numerator?|
|Prakash said: (Oct 12, 2016)|
|How to solve this problem without calculator is there any tips? Please tell me.|

|Total number of votes polled = (1136 + 7636 + 11628) = 20400.
Winner vote = 11628.
20400/100 = 204 (1% of votes),
20400/10 = 2040 (10% of votes)(204 * 10 = 2040),
20400/2 = 10200 (50% of votes)(204 * 50 = 10200),
60% of votes = 50% of votes + 10% of votes = 10200 + 2040 = 12240.
The result is 11628 <12240 (answer is 57%).

|Why we take numerator as 11628? Please explain it to me.|
|Priyaa said: (Jun 8, 2017)|
|Why 100 is multiplied instead to be in the place of divisor -last step?|
|Priyanka said: (Jul 18, 2017)|
|How come 57%? Please explain.|
|Ashish Panse said: (Aug 14, 2017)|
|Hello to all,
I think this very easy question & Iwill try to solve in very easy way.
Total number of votes are = (1136 + 7636 + 11628) = 20400
in which 11628 votes are the highest num. of votes & the candidate who has the highest num of votes is a winner.
Now, we find What percentage of the total votes did the winning candidate get?
And already the % of votes is given in answers, we just try check it whether or not the given % of total num of votes equals to the highest num. of votes.
i.e 57% of 20400 = 11628 (highest num of votes i.e winner)
(57/100) * 20400 = 11628.
So. therefore answer is option (a).57%.

= 1136 + 7636 + 11628,
|Rekha said: (Sep 15, 2018)|
There is a clear point in question like, we have to calculate the winning percentage only. We have already know 3rd contestant has got highest votes. So we have a formula like.
(Number of votes won by the contestant)/(total number of votes won by all).
As we know we are calculating percentage so multiply with 100.
|Sanju said: (Dec 9, 2018)|
|How come 11628/20400? Please explain me.|
|Mrunali Ramteke said: (Jun 14, 2019)|
They consider votes of the third person as a winner because the third person got the highest votes. In generic life who gets highest votes that one is the winner.
