Of the customers surveyed, how many liked

Draw 3 overlapping circles, D, C and SF.

Way in the middle where all three overlap, put 21

Where only D and C overlap, put 59

Where D has no overlap with others pu 196

etc

now you have to work from the inside out

to figure out how many like each 2 or each 1 exclusively

For example those liking only D and C

are

59-21 = 38

D and SF = 37-21 =16

C and SF = 32-21 = 11

then

those liking D alone = 196 - 38-21-16 =

121

those liking C alone = 153-38-21-11 =

83

those liking SF alone = 88-16-11-21 =

40

NOW do the problem

a

none = 350 - 121-38-21-16-83-11-40 = 20

b

121

c

121+83+40 = 244

Check my arithmetic!!!
