Hallo,
If 20 purchase both mixtures then 30 purchase cake mix only, 20 purchase muffin mix only. Then the number of people who buy neither is 30.
required prob is 30/100=3/10
IMO

3/10

C- cake, M muffine, B -banana

C -50 ,M 40 ,C & M =20 so B =100- (50+40 -20) =30

so B =30 , total buyers 100
probablity of choosing one of B's is 30/100 =3/10

From a venn diagram, we can find:

Muffin purchase = 20
Muffin + Cake purchase = 20
Cake purchase = 30
Bread purchase = 30
