    Answer:

    The ans would be 291 (however we can round this off to 290 as no can partially vote as 0.1)

    Step-by-step explanation:

    We can easily find the loser’s vote by-

    70% of 969= 678.9

    now, all we need to do is find the winners vote

    we know that the total no. of votes= 969 & we know the no. of votes loser got

    so, subtracting the losers vote from 969 would give us the remaining no. of votes (the winner’s votes)….so,

    969-678.9=290.1

    we can round this off to 290
