**Reiny**, Thursday, October 21, 2010 at 9:19pmUse Venn diagrams.

Make 3 overlapping circles, and label them S, F, and G

Place x in the intersection of all 3

and then place the 9, 9, and 15 in their correct regions

In the "Spanish only" part, put in 40-x

In the "French only" part, put in 47-x

In the "German only" part, put in 42-x

We are told 38 are taking at least two languages, that would be the regions showing some overlap, so

9+9+15+x = 38

x = 5

1. 5 take all 3

2. 42 take only French

3. prob = (71/152)(70/151) = 2485/11476
