Workers are grouped by their areas of expertise and are placed on at least one team. 20 workers are on team A, 30 are on team B, 40 are on team C. 5 workers are on both team A and B, 6 workers are on both the B and C teams, 9 workers are on both the C and A teams and 4 workers are on all 3 teams. How many workers are there in total?
I solved this using Venn Diagrams. Attaching the solution for you. This is my first ever attachment in the forum. Not sure if it will display the image of the attachment has to be opened. Please check.
the total no of students will be: 20+30+40 - (5+6+9+2*4) = 62
We have deducted the numbers coz the workers should be counted once, but the workers who are in two teams are counted twice and the workers who are in all three teams are counted thrice, Eg: Team A should have 20 workers but, Team B should have 20-5 workers coz the 5 workers are already counted in team A.
