Total number of students = sum of students in the three clubs - number of students that are counted
twice because they belong to more than 1 club

= (60+50+30) - (8+6+4)

=132

Kishan,

Perfect example of "Speed Kills" :-D

(60+50+30) - (8+6+4) = 122.

122 is my answer.

And in the case there are 3 students on all three teams, we have a total of 122+3 = 125, right?
