Let the number of voters who cast their votes be ‘x’ and the total number of voters be ‘y’
⇒ x = 60% of y
⇒ 5x = 3y is the equation.
For graph, we’ll first make the table of solutions by putting some random values of x and thereafter we’ll find corresponding values of y and then we’ll plot these points on graph, join them and extend them in straight line to find the graph.
(Note: ∵ equation is linear graph will always be straight line.)
Table of solutions for the given equation-
From the graph we can see that for x = 1200, the value of y = 2000
And for y = 800, the value of x = 480
(where, no. of voters who cast their vote = x, and Total no. of voters = y)
