Task# Voting for Three, Variation 3

Illustrative MathematicsVaries

This is the last problem of seven in a series about ratios set in the context of a classroom election. Since the number of voters is not known, the problem is quite abstract and requires a deep understanding of ratios and their relationship to fractions. Since we do not know how many votes there were in all, fractions must be used to solve the problem. It is given that Marie got of the votes, so there were of the votes left after Marie's share.
