number of voters for the Pink Party was 15:16 and the Pink Party won the

election. Had 300 more people voted for the Purple Party and 200 fewer people

voted for the Pink Party, the ratio would have been 11:10 and the Purple Party

would have won the election.

Determine the total number of votes originally cast.If A=purple and B=pink, I got A*(15/16)=B and (A+300)*(10/11)=B-200, but when I went through I didn't get the right answer.
