In the last election, candidate B received twice as many votes as candidate A. Candidate C received 15,000 fewer votes then candidate A. If a total of 109,000 votes were cast, how many votes did candidate B receive?
A = x votes
B = 2x votes
C = x-15000 votes added together = 109000
x + 2x + x - 15000 = 109000
4x - 15000 = 109 000
4x = 124000
x = 31 000 B = 2x = 62000 votes
