The table gives three factors to be considered when choosing an Internet service provider and the percent of the 1,200 respondents to a survey who cited that factor as important. If 30 percent of the respondents cited both “user-friendly” and “fast response time,” what is the maximum possible number of respondents who cited “bargain prices,” but neither “user-friendly” nor “fast response time?”

A. 312
B. 336
C. 360
D. 384
E. 420

this one looks llike a wenn diagramm, but not easy to solve. does anyone have a shortcut?

The way I looked at is is as follows:

UserFriendly(UF) + FastResponse (FR) = 30%
UF leftover = 56 - 30 = 26%
FR leftover = 48 - 30 = 18%

Sum these = 74% (ie. 74% were either UF+FR, UF, FR)
26% leftover is the maximum number for Bargain Price

26/100 * 1200 = 26 * 12 = 312 (A).

You could do this in a Venn diagram too I guess.

A..... max % =100-(56+48-30=74) = 26% or 312

straight 26% for 1200.

100-(56+48)+30 = 26%

In the following equation everything is in %

A = “user-friendly” B= “fast response time”
C=Bargain prices
100= 56+48+42- (AB+BC+CA) + ABC

now AB = 30
so
100 = 116- (BC+CA-ABC)
BC+CA-ABC = 16
So it can not be less that 16
Now exclusively bargain price or C = Total C - (BC+CA-ABC)
42-16 = 26%

1200*26%
=312

@raghavakumar85 Correct. 14 should be 18 in the right most circle.

Thanks.
