Answer:
Votes in favour of the winning candidate = 23,12,505

Winning margin = 7,842

Votes in favour of the losing candidate = 23,12,505 - 7,842

23,12,505 can be rounded off to its nearest hundred as 23,12,500.

7,842 can be rounded off to its nearest hundred as 7,800.

Required number of votes which the losing candidate got = 23,12,500 - 7,800 = 23,04,700.
