Need equation

Cj,

First let's change the variable name "o" to "B" because sooner or later "o" will get mixed up with "0", zero!

A votes: Va

B votes: Vb

Va= Vb - 47628

Therefore Vb = Va + 47628

And B won the election! ;-)

If I am reading your post right and there is no more to the problem:

A = O - 47628

Key phrase here is "votes less then" meaning taking it away from.

It wants you to solve for O so you add 47628 to A to get O

O = A + 47628

More information is needed such as the percentage of votes A obtained (or something like that).
