05/06/2017 - General Election Percentage Change

General Election Percentage Change

We took inspiration from the upcoming General Election to find out about how a party's number of seats increase or decrease depending on how successful they are in comparison to the previous election results.


We found out the the House of Commons has 650 seats, and for a party to have a majority, they need 326 seats in order to form a government.


Even though this was rather tricky at times, we all persevered and hopefully we know what the numbers and percentages mean when we watch the General Election results this week.
