The least number comes when both the categories have the highest overlap. Thus, the maximum overlap is all the students that play varsity sports are honors. => x/4 = 12. i.e., x = 48 which is the minimum.
In a certain class 1/3 of students are honors 1/4 of students play varisity sports. If 12 students are honors and play varisty sports , what is the least number of students in class?
Please explain your solution..
Thnx & Rgds,
