Overlapping Set M22 [#permalink] New post 18 Mar 2012, 07:59
Out of 320 people, 75% like talk-show 1 and 65% of the people who like talk-show 1 also like talk-show 2. If there are no people who like talk-show 2 but do not like talk-show 1, how many of the 320 people do not like talk-show 2 ?

72
84
120
156
164

P(who like talk-show1) = 320*75/100 = 240

P(who like Talkshow1 &talk show2) i.e P(both) = 65/100*240 = 156

P(who donot like talk show2) = P(who like ONLY talkshow1) = 240-156 =84

But the answer is E

Can anybody pls clarify?

there are no ppl who like talk show 2 but not talk show 1 => people who like talk show 2 = 156
ppl who do not like talk show 2 = total 320 - people who DO like talk show 2 (which is 156) = 164
