66 + 45 + 42 - 2*27 - 3*3 = 153 - 60 = 93 play atleast one.

I agree with the method and the answer. I made a calculation error. it has to be 21

Hi fresinha12

Why have you added the triple? I think you should minus two times tripple. What do you think?
In the condition we have:
"27 play exactly 2 sports and 3 play all 3 sports"
I think that in 27 we don't have triple.

I agree with this rationale, but I get 60.

66+45+42=153

2*27+3*3=63

153-63=90 that play one sport.

Therefore 150-90 = 60 that play no sport.

That was a stupid one. I guess I got influenced by the previous post. Yeah... 60 looks correct.

23 play no sports at all.

each of the given sports have a total of 10 players that play that and at least one other sport. these add up to 127 sports participants.

150 - 127 = 23 play nothing.

Using a Venn diagram, there are 3 areas that overlap 2 sports, and 1 area that overlaps all three sports. Put 9 into each of the "double" areas (for the 27 that play 2 sports), and 3 into the center of the diagram. (Assuming that the 27 are equally divided among the sports, but that really doesn't matter). Then you can see that for each sport, you need to subtract 21. That means that, of the students that only play one sport, you have 45 in baseball, 24 in basketball, and 21 in soccer. That, plus the 27 (2 sports) and 3(3 sports)= 120 students that play sports. So 30 don't.

OMG. This looks correct too. I think the number I found in the first post is actually the no. of people who play just one sport. I should have added the rest too.

Thanks for your explanation man

Set up a venn diagram with the following:
#(all three) = 3
#(basketball and baseball) = x
#(basketball and soccer) = y
#(soccer and baseball) = z

So x+y+z = 27

#(none) = n


63-x-z + 42-x-y + 39-y-z + x + y + z + 3 + n= 150
147-x-y-z+n= 150
147 - (x+y+z) + n = 150
147 - (27) + n = 150
n = 30

Sorry, too tired and lazy to draw it out =(

Great explanation. Thanks a lot. Helped me correct my mistake with the venn diagram.

Using the formula for 3 overlapping sets we get 30 as well.

you minus the doubles cause you have counted them twice, once when we are given the number of basket ball player, football etc..you add the triple cause triple +single -double will give you the total number of players...

try it with a simple example..

nothing to add. but i do differently

total = x + y + z - (xy + yz + xz) - 2(xyz) + n
150 = 66 + 45 + 42 - (27) - 2(3) + n
n = 30

Hi Himalayan,

Thanks for the post. Your answer seems correct.

However, could you plz tell me if it is the standard formula which you have used to solve the problem.

ioiio, you are correct except you don't multiply the 27 by 2. The 27 figure encompasses all 2-sport individuals and thus no manipulation is needed. The formula is:
A + B + C -AB - AC - BC - 2ABC + Neither = Total

In this problem, it states that AB + AC + BC = 27 --> don't need to multiply by 2.

Plus, the 3 figure is multiplied by 2, not 3.


Answer is 30.
