In an elementary school, students know atleast one of the languages, French and Spanish. 125 students know French, 75 students know Spanish and 50 of them know both French and Spanish. How many students are there in the school?
Venn Diagram:

n(F) = number of students who know French
n(S) = number of students who know Spanish
n(F) = 125, n(S) = 78, n(F n S) = 50
We have to find n(F u S)
We know that n(F u S) = n(F) + n(S) - n(F n S)
= 125 + 75 - 50
= 150

Directions: Solve the following problems. Also write at least five examples of your own.
Q 1: There are 64 persons in a group. Each of them eats either apple or plantain or both. Those who eat apples are 36 in number. The number those who eat both apples and plantain is 21. How many eat plantains only?

Q 2: In a class of 80 boys, there are 60 boys who play rugby and 35 play tennis. Use Venn diagrams to show how many boys play both the games? How many play rugby only and how many play tennis only?
15 boys play both games; rugby only = 45 tennis only = 20
10 boys play both games; rugby only = 40 tennis only = 10
20 boys play both games; rugby only = 50 tennis only = 25

How many students are enrolled in Mathematics alone, Physics alone and Chemistry alone?
Mathematics alone = 50; Physics alone = 60; hemistry alone=13
Mathematics alone = 35; Physics alone = 60; Chemistry alone=12
Mathematics alone = 60; Physics alone = 35; Chemistry alone=13
