Given: 

In an election, the successful candidate registered \( 5,77,500 \) votes and his nearest rival secured 3,48,700 votes.

To do: 

We have to find the margin by which the successful candidate won the election.

Solution:

Number of votes secured by the successful candidate $= 577500$

Number of votes secured by his rival $= 348700$

Therefore,

The margin by which the successful candidate won the election $= 577500 - 348700$

$= 228800$ votes

Hence, the successful candidate won the election by 228800 votes.
