Question

Presidential elections are held every four years. U.S. senators are elected to b-year terms, but only $\frac{1}{3}$ of the Senate is up for election every two years. If $\frac{1}{3}$ of the Senate is elected during a presidential election year, how many years must pass before these same senate seats are up for election during another presidential election year?

Solution

VerifiedStep 1

1 of 2We need to determine when will a presidential election and when the senators' term will be terminated occur at the same time.

Since presidential elections occur every 4 years and the senators are elected to 6-year terms, then we need to find the first common multiple of 4 and 6 which is 12. Hence, $\text{\color{#c34632}12 years}$ must pass.
