No One was Not taking any of these,Because 33+13=46

N(Math OR English) = N(Math) + N(English) - n(Math AND English)

= 13 + 33 - 6

= 40

So 40 took either Math or English, then

6 took neither of these subjects

You can also do this with Venn diagrams

Subtract 6 from 13 and from 33.

Then add 6 back just once.

7 + 27 + 6 = 40 students are taking either one or both of the subjects.

So 46 - 40 = 6 students are taking neither of the subjects.
