If only 45 master craftsman with ten or more years own their own shop where are the others 65 master that own their own shop? Since we only have 50 with fewer than 10 years experience. I think I haven't understood this question well. Could someone explain?

Hi..
The distribution of MC is 71 > 10yrs and 50 <= 10yrs..
Of these 110 own their shop..
So Min of these from >10yrs =110-50=60 and max is all71
So solution can be any number between 60 and 71.
So you are correct that there is no valid answer here.

Bunuel, please check if there is some typo..

Good point. I got X to equal 121 total who own a shop. 121 - 50 ( <10 years experience) = 71. Am I missing something? Thanks
