n(AUBUC) = n(A)+n(B)+n(C)-n(A&B)-n(A&C)-n(B&C)+n(A&B&C)

therefore plugging in the values above
85 = 105-n(A&B)-n(A&C)-n(B&C)
=> n(A&B)+n(A&C)+n(B&C) = 20 (ans)

Pakoo, What is 10(2*5) ? Please elaborate your solution a bit, if you could.

X=people liking at least 2 products
50+30+20-X-5 = 85
X=10
But you have to add 5 because those 5 like more than 2 products.
Hence answer is 10+5=15

Pakoo, you failed to take into account the 15% of people who do not like any products

Paul, the equation should be like:

50+30+20- 2X-5 = 85
2X = 10
X=5

now, we will add 5% (all 3) = 5+5 = 10

I used venn diagrams for this and got 10%. Took me a few minutes but was foolproof.

x+y+z+a+b+c+5= 85 eq 1

x+a+c+5 = 50
y+b+c+5 = 30
z+a+b+5 = 20
_________________________
x+y+z+2(a+b+c) + 15 = 100 eq 2
_________________________

eq2 - eq1 gives

a+b+c = 5

final answer is a+b+c+5 = 10%

Ok this is quite simple....
like probability assume all possibilities and simply add

100= 50+30+20+5+x-15

thus x=10

A. 5
B. 10
C. 15
D. 20
E. 25


As 85% of those surveyed liked at least one of three products then 15% liked none of three products.

Total = {liked product 1} + {liked product 2} + {liked product 3} - {liked exactly two products} - 2*{liked exactly three product} + {liked none of three products}

\(100=50+30+20-x-2*5+15\) --> \(x=5\), so 5 people liked exactly two products. More than one product liked those who liked exactly two products, (5%) plus those who liked exactly three products (5%), so 5+5=10% liked more than one product.

Answer: B.

For more check: formulae-for-3-overlapping-sets-69014.html (there is my post in the end of the first page about the formulas of 3 overlapping sets with theory, diagrams and examples).

Hope it helps.
