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
