1.)37 2.)43 3.)45 4.)60

Any help in demystifying the above problems with venn diagram shall be highly appreciated ?


Total = {Math} + {Chemistry} + {English} - {# of students who take exactly 2 classes} - 2*{# of students who take exactly 3 classes} + {# of students who take none of 3 classes}

\(150=53+88+58-x-2*6+0\) --> \(x=37\).

Answer: A.

For more check: formulae-for-3-overlapping-sets-69014.html (there is my post in the end of the first page about the formulas of 3 overlapping sets with theory, diagrams and examples).


Hope it helps.

A. 37
B. 43

D. 60


This is an overlapping sets question. We can use the following formula to determine how many students took exactly two classes:

Total students = # Math + # Chemistry + # English - # Exactly two classes - 2(# All three classes) + # None

150 = 53 + 88 + 58 - T - 2(6) + 0

150 = 199 - T - 12

150 = 187 - T

T = 37

Answer: A

150=199-Exactly 2 - 2 x Common in 3

150= 199-E2-12

E2= 187-150

E2=37

A. 37
B. 43
C. 45
D. 60



Formula : Total = G1 + G2 + G3 - Exactly 2 - 2(All) + Neither

Here Neither = 0

So, 150 = 53 + 88 + 58 - E2 -2(6) + 0

Solving this we get Exactly 2 = 37

(A)
