In Jefferson School, 300 students study French or Spanish or both. If 100 of these students do not study French, how many of these students study both French and Spanish?
(1) Of the 300 students, 60 do not study Spanish.
(2) A total of 240 of the students study Spanish
This is a straightforward problem and the best possible way to solve is by using the Venn diagrams. However, MGMAT (word translation guide) recommends that we use a table when dealing with two sets of data. While using the table methodology, I wasn't able to derive the right answer to this problem. Is this problem not compatible with the table methodology? Please advice. Thanks!
I would go with Venn diagrams for such problems
