Of the 300 patients who suffered from at least one symptom of A, B, and C, 35 % suffered from A, 45% suffered from B, 40 % suffered from C, 10% suffered from exactly 2 of them. How many people suffered from exactly one symptom?
Christoph, are you assuming that nobody had all 3 symptoms?
i assume that 30 have exactly two symptoms and 30 have all three symptomps. A+B+C=360. so 30 have i.e. AB and 30 have ABC. so its A-ABC-AB+(B-ABC-AB)+(C-ABC)=105-30-30+135-30-30+120-30=210. is it ? _________________

Please explain this problem ....I didnt get the solution.....
gmat, use Venn diagram, draw three intersecting circles representing A B C, there will be 3 areas where only to sets intersect, and 1 where all three intersect. Solution should be clear if you do that. Sorry I have no idea how to draw things on my comp, otherwise I would do it.
(A intersect B) + (B intersect C) + (C intersect A) - (A intersect B intersect C) = 10%.300 = 30
T = A + B + C - (A inter B) - (B inter C) - (C inter A) + (A inter B inter C)
= A + B + C - 30 - 2 (A inter B inter C)
<--> 300 = 105 + 135 +120 - 30 - 2 (A inter B inter C)
--> (A inter B inter C) = 15

the trick here is to remember 4 main equations union of three sets = (sum of 3) - (sum of 2) + (all 3) exactly 2 = (sum of 2) - 3(all 3) at least 2 = (sum of 2) - 2(all 3) only 1 = (sum of 3) -2(sum of 2) + 3(all 3)
of course add neither to each one of these if not everyone is in a set...

Pls explain answer choice..
deferred solution till OA is out, but here it goes..
T = A + B + C - (2 of them) - 2 * (ABC) + neither
300 = 105 + 135 + 120 -30 -2*ABC
ABC = 15.
a + 2*b + 3*c = 105 + 135 + 120 = 360 a + 2*30 + 3*15 = 360
==> a = 255 pls explain the step in the red color
