Given: Out of $15,000$ voters in a constituency, $60 \%$ voted.

To do: To find the percentage of voters who did not vote. And to find how many actually did not vote.

Solution:

Total voters $= 15,000$

Percentage of voted candidates $=60$ %

Percentage of not voted candidates $=100-60=40$ %

Actual candidates, who did not vote $=40$ % of $15000$

$=\frac{40}{100}\times15000$

Hence, 6,000 candidates did not vote.
