20 + 25 + 50(x - 2) = C

20 + 25 + 50(x - 2) = C
45 + 50x - 100 = C
50x - 55 = C
50x = C + 55
x = (C + 55)/50

Maya and Sally were the two finalists in a singing competition. The person with the most votes from the audience was chosen as the winner. Sally received 25% of the total votes and lost by 62,500 votes. No person in the audience was allowed to vote more than once. The equation below represents this situation, where y is the total number of votes cast and x is the number of votes Maya received.
x - 62,500 = 0.25y
If a total of 125,000 people voted, how many votes did Maya receive? **Weegy:** If a total of 125,000 people voted, the formula becomes x - 62,500 = 0.25 x 125,000
x = 31,250 + 62,500
x = 93,750
Maya received 93,750 votes (More)
