A certain manufacturer of cake, muffin, and bread mixes has 100 buyers of whom 50 purchases cake mix, 40 purchases muffin mix and 20 purchase both cake mix and muffin mix. If a buyer is to be selected at random from the 100 buyers, what is the probability that the buyer selected will be one who purchases neither cake mix nor muffin mix?

1/10
3/10
1/2
7/10
9/10

50+40-20 + neither = 100

neither = 30
30/100 = 3/10 - B please concur. Thanks

***********
If purchaser seperated as detaile below, basing 20 buy both cake and muffin mix

20 - muffin
20 - both
Now, probability is 30/100 = 3/10
