(A) 210 (B) 250 (C) 260 (D) 360 (E) 390 IMO D. This is a bit tricky and I always like to solve three overlapping set problems with a diagram. ( Diagram is attached) We want to find a + b + c x + y + z = 210. (35% of 600 like exactly two juices liked ) ...(1) a + d + x + z = 450 ( 75% of 600 like orange ) ...(2) b + d + x + y = 240 ( 40% of 600 like apple ) ...(3) c + d + y + z = 180 ( 30% of 600 like grape ) ...(4) add (4) + (2) + (3) equations. (a + b + c) + 3*d + 2*( x + y + z) = 450 + 240 + 180 = 870 a + b + c + 3*d = 870  2*(210) = 870  420 = 450 ...(5) Also since everyone likes at least one juice... sum of all variables is 600. a + b + c + d + x + y + z = 600 a + b + c + d = 600  210 = 390 ...(6) subtract (6) from (5) 2d = 450  390 = 60 d = 30 ... (7) Put value of d back in either (5) or (6) to obtain (a + b + c) = 360 Hence D. Please give kudos if you liked the explanation... Best, Gladi

(A) 210 (B) 250 (C) 260 (D) 360 (E) 390 Let x be the total number. We know that, \(x = 0.75x + 0.4x + 0.3x  0.35x  2(All Three)\) All Three = 0.05xOnly One = Total  Exactly Two  Exactly Three = x  0.35x  0.05x = 0.6x = 360.
Hence, D

The formula is : Total=A+B+C−(sum of EXACTLY 2−group overlaps)−2∗(all three)+NeitherDoes that make sense?

Solution: Given: • Total students in the survey = 600 = 100% (Assume)
• Students who like orange juice = 75%
• Students who like apple juice = 40%
• Students who like grape juice = 30%
• Students who like exactly two juices = 35% Working out: We need to find the number of students who like only one type of juices. Let us denote the number of students who like exactly 1 type of juice by I, who like exactly 2 types of juices by II and students who like exactly three types of juices by III. Since the question mentions that all of the students like at least one type of juice, we can say: I +II + III = 100%. Now, let us represent this information via a venn diagram. • Students who like apple juice = 40% = a+d+g+e
• Students who like orange juice =75% = b+d+g+f
• Students who like grape juice = 30% = e+g+f+b
• Students liking at least one juices = 40% + 75% + 30% = a+b+c + 2*(d+e+f) + 3(g)
As discussed earlier, a+b+c = I, d+e+f = II, g = III • Thus, I + 2II + 3III = 145%___(i)
• Also, I + II + III = 100%_______(ii)
• Subtracting (ii) from (i), we have: II + 2III = 45% II= 35% (Given in the question) Thus, 2III = 10%, Or, III = 5%. Putting the values of II and III in equation (ii), we get: • 100% = I + 35% + 5%
• Or, I = 60%.
• And this is equal to 60% of 600 = 360 Answer: Option D

(A) 210 (B) 250 (C) 260 (D) 360 (E) 390 We can use the formula: Total = orange juice + apple juice + grape juice  double  2(triple) + neither 600 = 0.75(600) + 0.4(600) + 0.3(600)  0.35(600)  2t + 0 600 = 450 + 240 + 180  210  2t 600 = 660  2t 60 = 2t t = 30 So, 600  210  30 = 360 like exactly one juice. Answer: D
