A. 196 B. 226 C. 234 D. 360 E. 662 Total = Group1 + Group2 + Neither − Both, for each week. Let fishing be Group1 and orienteering be Group2 for week 1, Total = 44 + 33 + 37 − Both; for week 2, 120 = Group1 + 33 + 49 − 15. Solve for Group1 ,we get 53 people went fishing in week 2. Twice that many, or 106, attended week 1 overall, and over the 2 weeks the camp was attended by a total of 106 + 120 = 226 people. IMO B

A. 196 B. 226 C. 234 D. 360 E. 662 We can let f = the number of campers who go fishing in week 2. Thus, we can create the equation: f + 33  15 + 49 = 120 f + 67 = 120 f = 53 Since twice as many campers attend week 1 as those who go fishing in week 2, 2 x 53 = 106 campers attend week 1 and hence a total of 106 + 120 = 226 campers attend both weeks. Answer: B
