### Discussion :: Percentage

1.  In an election between two candidates, one got 55% of the total valid votes, 20% of the votes were invalid. If the total number of votes was 7500, the number of valid votes that the other candidate got, was:
2. A.
 2700
B.
 2900
C.

3000

D.

3100

Explanation :

Number of valid votes = 80% of 7500 = 6000.

Valid votes polled by other candidate = 45% of 6000

= [ $$\frac { 45 } { 100}$$ x 6000 ] = 2700
