This year, 120 students are in the chorus, 40 students in both chorus & Italian, 45 students in both chorus & baseball, and 15 students do all three activities. If 220 students are in either Italian or baseball, then how many student are in none of the three activities? A. 40 B. 60 C. 70 D. 100 E. 130 Kudos for a correct solution.

I used GmatClub formula
Total = A + B + C  (Sum of Overlaps) + All 3 + None
400 = 120 + 220 (either I or B)  ( 40 + 45 ) + 15 + None
I get None = 130
Is this appraoch correct?
I was confused with the foll stmnt "If 220 students are in either Italian or baseball" .... but slotted this number in the above formula Not 100% sure if this is correct

Kudos for a correct solution. MAGOOSH OFFICIAL SOLUTION:This problem calls for a 3way Venn Diagram. Here’s the diagram with no numbers filled in. Attachment:
gppse_img13.png [ 45.09 KiB  Viewed 3356 times ]
We know that C = 15. If 40 students are in both chorus & Italian, B + C = 40, and because C = 15, B = 25. If 45 students in both chorus & baseball, C + F = 45, and F = 30. We know that there are 120 in chorus, and B + C + F = 70, so E = 50. Now, we are told that 220 student are in either Italian or baseball. Think about that region, Italian or baseball: Attachment:
gppse_img14.png [ 42.46 KiB  Viewed 3358 times ]
That entire purple region, A + B + C + D + F + G, is 220. If we add E = 50, that’s a total of 270 inside all three circles, which means that the outside of the circle, H, must equal 400 – 270 = 130. Answer = (E).

You say "40 students in both chorus & Italian" > Why do you take this as (B+C) ??? Shouldn't this be only B ? The question explicitely states "15 students do all three activities" . That means the author of the question is telling us that he already seperated B and C! and C=15 ! and B=40 ! This question seems wrongly worded~ Please note the word " and" in the following sentence.... 40 students in both chorus & Italian, 45 students in both chorus & baseball, and 15 students do all three activities I think "and" implies that the numbers are in addition.. i,e you cannot say B+C is 40! It is actually B=40 and C=15...

SO we have to do this by Venn Diagram.

BunuelThe question says that 220 students are in either Italian or baseball. So, should our approach not be that A+B+C+D= 220 OR C+D+F+G= 220 ?
