Let it be x ( both cars )
People having only F = 16-x and only T = 11 - x
By ques, 16-x + 11 - x = 15 => x = 6 which is asked.

if # of people who own both is x,

then 16-x + 11-x = 15
-2x = -12
x = 6.

less than 40 seconds. i rate this extremely easy.

Ford = (5+6) = 11
Toyota = (10+6) = 16

Only one type = 5+10 = 15

so the answer should be (B)

since the six people in each group are the same people !

x = both cars

16 - x

11 - x

how can we be so confident that x is less than 11 and 16?
