but 5000 is smaller than 47500 so how could 5000 win ?
candidate got 47500 votes
defeated by 5000 margin
i.e 47500+5000= 52500
total no. of votes = 52500+47500
=100000
47500/100000*100= 47.5% Ans

52.5 percent
total = 47500 + (47500+5000)
= 47500+52500
= 100000
winning percentage= 52500\100000×100
=52.5 percent
