Question 131748: A piechart represents the results of an election on an alien planet. The candidate, Hum, won the election, receiving five times as many votes as Yab. Pip received 30% of all votes. What percentage of votes did Hum receive? Answer by checkley71(8403) (Show Source):
You can put this solution on YOUR website! PIP GOT 30% OF THE VOTES.
THEREFORE THAT LEAVES 70% OF THE TOTAL VOTES.
X=.11 2/3 OR 11 2/3% WAS THE AMOUNT OF YAB'S VOTES.
70-11 2/3=58 1/3% WAS THE AMOUNT OF hUM'S VOTES.
30+11 2/3+58 1/3=100
