In a neighborhood having 90 households, 11 did not have either a car or a bike. If 12 households had a both a car and a bike and 44 had a car, how many had bike only?

A. 30 B. 35 C. 20 D. 18 E. 10

{Total}={Car}+{Bike}-{Both}+{Neither} --> 90=44+{Bike}-12+11 --> {Bike}=47 --> # those who have bike only is {Bike}-{Both}=47-12=35.

N(Car or Bike) = N(Car) + N(Bike) - N(Car + Bike)

N(Car or Bike) = 90-11 = 79

N(Car) = 44

N(Car + Bike) = 12

79 = 44 + N(Bike) - 12

N (Bike) = 47

But this includes people with Bike and Car both.

People with just Bike = 47 - 12 = 35

Pls tell where I am wrong.

You did nothing wrong: answer B is correct. Though after you got that N(Car or Bike) = 79 and N(Car) = 44, you could directly subtract from the group who has a car or a bike (79) the group who has a car (44) to get the group who has only bike: 79-44=35.

Answer: B.

Hope it's clear.

Is "11 did not have either a car or a bike" same as "11 did have neither a car nor a bike" ?
