Captain ElectionMath brain teasers require computations to solve.
In an election for school captain, 320 votes were cast for five candidates. The winner's margin over the four candidates was 9, 13, 18 and 25. What was the lowest number of votes?
x + (x-9) + (x-13) + (x-18) + (x-25) = 320. Solve this and get x = 77. Therefore the lowest score is 77 - 25 = 52.
