Clients at Chippy's Investment House have three investment options available to them - bonds, stocks, and mutual funds. There were a total of 73 investors. Forty-four of those investors decided to invest in either bonds or mutual funds, but not both, and one-fourth of those people also invested in stocks. Seven people decided to invest solely in stocks. The remaining investors invested in equal numbers in either all three options or a combination of bonds and mutual funds, how many investors have some stake in stocks?

=>a+d+c+f=44
=>d+f=11
Seven people decided to invest solely in stocks.
=>b=7

=>e=g=11
since a+b+c+d+e+f+g=73 [e+g=73-44-7=22]
how many investors have some stake in stocks?
b+d+f+g=?
7+11+11=
29
