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
