A 2 B 4 C 8 D 12 E 32
Total = C + D + R - (CD + DR + CR) - 2CDR
60 = 30 + 40 + 10 - (12) - 2x
x = 4
So, answer will be B Hope it helps! _________________

when a problem is like you posted here or similar, like this one
Quote:
Each of the 59 members in a high school class is required to sign up for a minimum of one and a maximum of three academic clubs. The three clubs to choose from are the poetry club, the history club, and the writing club. A total of 22 students sign up for the poetry club, 27 students for the history club, and 28 students for the writing club. If 6 students sign up for exactly two clubs, how many students sign up for all three clubs?
is much better to use the formula Total = C + D + R - Exactly two - 2*All three (refers also to the post linked by Bunuel (the second one)
\(IF\) the problem is like this
Quote:
Workers are grouped by their areas of expertise, and are placed on at least one team. 20 are on the marketing team, 30 are on the Sales team, and 40 are on the Vision team. 5 workers are on both the Marketing and Sales teams, 6 workers are on both the Sales and Vision teams, 9 workers are on both the Marketing and Vision teams, and 4 workers are on all three teams. How many workers are there in total?
or this
Quote:
The 38 movies in the video store fall into the following three categories: 10 action, 20 drama, and 18 comedy. However, some movies are classified under more than one category: 5 are both action and drama, 3 are both action and comedy, and 4 are both drama and comedy. How many action-drama-comedy movies are there?
(souce MGMAT)
you can use either \(venn diagram\) or the formula \(Total= A+B+C - (AnB+AnC+BnC) +AnBnC + Neither\) is the same thing: it depends on which you are more comfortable
In the first case, that is the case of the question of the post at stake, is much better use the formula because is faster ans because set up a Venn diagram is more convoluted and prone of errors. Try to stay flexible.

60 = 30 + 40 + 10 - 12 - 2x
2x = 8
x = 4
Why is the total number of "exactly two" that we are subtracting only 12? Why is it not 36? For each pair of groups we have one overlap... So for 3 pairs of groups, we should have 3*12 = 36... No?
