  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
