Task# Voting for Three, Variation 1

Illustrative MathematicsVaries

This problem is the fifth in a series of seven about ratios. At first glance the problem may look to be beyond 6.RP.1, which limits itself to 'describe a ratio relationship between two quantities.' However, even though there are three quantities (the number of each candidates' votes), they are only considered two at a time. In the first problem students define the simple ratios that exist among the three candidates.
