Solve the problem by stating the equation you would use to solve and then solving it. Be sure to show work... In a local election, 25,800 people voted. Thius was an increase of 5% over the last election. How many people voted in thne last election? Round to the nearest whole person.
25800 = original + 5% increase of original = 1*original + 0.05*original can you find the original now?
let x be no of people voting last yr.....increase in 5 % means (1+0.05)x....which is given as 25800
