Immediate application of the simplifier:

\(A \cup B \cup C = A + B + C - \left[ {\sum {{\text{Exactly}}2} } \right] - 2 \cdot \left[ {{\text{Exactly3}}} \right]\)

In our case (see figure attached):

\(8 = {\text{F}} \cup {\text{Bu}} \cup {\text{Ba}}\mathop = \limits^{\left( * \right)} 12 - 4 - 2x\,\,\,\,\, \Rightarrow \,\,\,? = x = 0\)


(All numerical alternative choices - we may explore a particular case, as we did.)


This solution follows the notations and rationale taught in the GMATH method.

fskilnik.
