Total = n(A) + n(B) - n(Exactly 2 products) -2 (AnBnC) + Neither.

Neither is zero.

Hence 100 = 60 + 50 + 35 - n (Exactly 2 products) - 2*10

100 = 125 - n (Exactly 2 products) => n (Exactly 2 products) = 25.

Thanks ezhilkumarank.

Just wanted to confirm the formula:

Total = n(A) + n(B) n(C0 - n(Exactly 2 products) -2 (AnBnC) + Neither...right???

Correct. I swallowed a part of the formula in the hurry to complete my post.
