Ms. Sue,
I think you're missing something. Obviously, some students enjoy more than one sport.

Bethany,
But if some students enjoy than one sport how does that go to do with anything? Can you please help me I really need help?

Ms. Sue,
Your problem states that 4/5 enjoy basketball, and 5/6 enjoy soccer.
4/5 + 5/6 = 24/30 + 25/30 = 49/30 = 1 19/30
That's way more than the total number of students.
