The residents of a city voted on whether to raise property taxes. The ratio of yes votes to no votes was 5 to 7. If there were 5964 no votes, what was the total number of votes?(edited)

No votes are   7 out of 12     yes votes are  5 out of 12

 

7/12 = 5964 votes

 

total votes =    5964  * 12/7  = 10224  total votes

We can set up variables: 7x=5964, 12x=5964/7*12=10224 total votes.
