Draw your 3-circle Venn diagram. Label the circles D,C,I

DCI = .1
so
DC only = .15 (.25-.10)
CI only = .20 (.30-.10)
DI only = .25 (.35-.10)

D only = .20 (.70 - .15 - .10 - .25)
C only = .00 (.45 - .15 - .10 - .20)
I only = .05 (.60 - .25 - .10 - .20)

Add up all the percentages and it is clear that only 90% of the employees read any papers.

That makes .9*2940 = 2646 readers.

So,

a. D only = .2*2940 = 588
b. C only = 0
c. I only = .05*2940 = 147
d. None = .10*2940 = 294

95% of the employees read any newspaper, therefore 5% don't read and newspaper. D should be 147
