So let F visited France alone, E visited England alone and b visited both..
So F+E+b*2=60+90……80+b*2=150……2b=70……b=35 and none=130-80-35=15
D

Thank you! How do you solve this using an overlapping sets matrix? I was able to get all the info down on mine, but fail to complete it since I now have to assign variables to complete the rest...

Hi OCDianaOC

Refer to below overlapping set diagram.

As it is given that only franco or only England is 80

=>60-x+90-x=80

=>x=35

Thanks for sharing your venn diagram. However, I'm used to this type of overlapping sets. What am I missing here? Please help. Thanks!

Hi OCDianaOC

the 2 by 2 matrix presented is ambiguous.

if you check the first row it can be interpreted as England & #France (which i am assuming is only France)=90-x, which is illogical and similarly for the second row.

if the common region between England and France is x, then #France will be 60-x and #England =90-x

you simply need to add these two values and get the value of x i.e. 60-x+90-x=80

Hi OCDianaOC

Responding to your PM, if you want to use the 2 by 2 matrix then it will be as mentioned below. Note there will be no common value between Only France and Only England, hence the matrix should mention value as 0. Hope this clarifies your doubt

60=B'+both
90=A'+ both
150=80+ 2 both
Both =35

Solving it by equation is not needed. Simple Sets--Overlapping will give the answer in a much easier way.

1) 0
2) 15
C) 25
D) 35
E) 55

We can create the equation:

France or England but not both = 60 - both + 90 - both

80 = 60 + 90 - 2(both)

70 = 2(both)

35 = both

1) 0
2) 15
C) 25
D) 35
E) 55

Formula : Exactly one = F + E - 2*(both F&E)

F = 60
E = 90
Given , Exactly 1 ( either England or France) = 80

==> 80 = 60+90-2(x) ==> x=35
ie, Both F&E = x = 35.

Ans D
