Task# Voting for Three, Variation 2

Illustrative MathematicsVaries

This is the sixth problem in a series of seven that use the context of a classroom election. While it still deals with simple ratios and easily managed numbers, the mathematics surrounding the ratios are increasingly complex. In this problem, the total number of votes in the election and the number of votes for individual candidates is not provided. The problem provides the ratio of John's votes to Will's votes and enough information to compute the number of votes for Marie.
