Of the 300 subjects who participated in an experiment using virtual-reality therapy to reduce their fear of heights, 40 percent experienced sweaty palms, 30 percent experienced vomiting, and 75 percent experienced dizziness. If all of the subjects experienced at least one of these effects and 35 percent of the subjects experienced exactly two of these effects, how many of the subjects experienced only one of these effects?

Hi,
We know, \(A\cup B\cup C = A+B+C-A\cap B-B\cap C-C\cap A +A\cap B\cap C\) where \(A = 40%\) \(B = 30%\) \(C = 75%\) As per the attached Venn diagram, \(A\cup B\cup C=100%\)
\(A\cap B+B\cap C+C\cap A=\)Exactly two - 3x (assuming \(A\cap B\cap C=x\)) \(=35-3x\) Thus, \(100= 40+30+75-(35-3x)+x\) or \(x = 5%\)
Thus, subjects expriencing only one effect = 100% - (subjects expriencing only two effects) - (subjects expriencing all effects) or subjects expriencing only one effect = 100 - 35 - 5 = 60%

All GMATPrep RCs (New) Tip: Before exam a week earlier don't forget to exhaust all gmatprep problems specially for "sentence correction".
Adding equations (1), (2) and (3) we get x+y+z+2(p+q+r+w)+w=435 subtract equation (a) from above equation we get p+q+r+2w = 135 given p+q+r = 105 (35% of 300)
so w =15 and p+q+r+w = 120
substitute value of above equation in (a) gets x+y+z = 180

A. 105 B. 125 C. 130 D. 180 E. 195
100%=40%+30%+75%-35%-2*x or, 2x=10% or, x=5% Experienced only one of these effects=100%-35%-5%=60% By the way, 100%=300 or, 1%=300/100 or, 60%=300*60/100=180 So, the best answer is (D). posted By mannan mian

A. 105 B. 125 C. 130 D. 180 E. 195
exactly two = A+B+C-2(A n B n C)-(A u B u C) OR, 35 = 40+30+75 - 2(A n B n C) - 100 OR, (A n B n C) = 5% = 5% OF 300 = 15
Exactly 3 = 15 Exactly 2 = 35% of 300 = 105 So exactly one = 300 -(15+105) = 180 (Answer) _________________

So Group 1 + Group 2 + Group 3 - 2-group overlaps * 2 - 3-group overlaps * 3 is our answer
i dont understand why Vandygrad multiplies 2 gr overlaps by 2 and 3 gr overlaps by 3? dont we need to minus 3 times "exactly 2 gr" overlaps and once "3 gr" overlaps?

The reason is simple; you do not want to include any of the common elements. In this case there are three elements;
So when you add A and B you are counting the exactly2 common elements twice once with A and once with B ; so considering other combinations we subtract 2gr overlaps twice and not thrice. _________________

So Group 1 + Group 2 + Group 3 - 2-group overlaps * 2 - 3-group overlaps * 3 is our answer = 120 + 90 + 225 - 105*2 - 15*3 = 435 - 210 - 45 = 180
Can someone explain how we get the formula highlighted in red above? Why do we multiply the 2-group overlaps and 3-group overlaps by 2 and 3 respectively? I didn't get that part. Thanks.
