Club # of Students
Chess 40
Drama 30
Math 25

The table above shows the number of students in three clubs at McAuliffe School. Although no student is in all three clubs, 10 students are in both Chess and Drama, 5 students are in both Chess and Math, and 6 students are in both Drama and Math. How Many different students are in the three clubs?

This problem can be solved by setting up a venn diagram. However, I was wondering how you could solve by setting up an equation (if that's even possible).

Use the equation,
n(atleast one)= N(A)+N(B)+N(C)-N(exactly two)- 2N(ALL THREE)
total diff students= 40+30+25-10-5-6= 74 ( we are given no tudent attens all three)

n(C) = 40
n(D) = 30
n(M) = 25
n(C & D) = 10
n(C & M) = 5
n(D & M) = 6
n(C & D & M) = 0

Total = n(C) + n(D) + n(M) - n(C & D) - n(C & M) - n(D & M) + n(C & D & M) = 74
