**Ms. Sue**, Friday, March 8, 2013 at 8:45pm630 use band P. 210 use both brands.

630 - 210 = 420 use only brand P.

**Ms. Sue**, Friday, March 8, 2013 at 9:01pm191 makes no sense since all of the numbers end in 0.

**Lady Lyric**, Thursday, March 28, 2013 at 11:45amFor number 2, you have 89 students that are in the band, 215 students that are on sports teams, and 31 students that participate in both activities.

Now remember that they are counting the people that are both, twice. So you need to find out how many people are just in the band and sports teams and not both. So:

89 - 31 = 58 people are in the band

215 - 31 = 184 people are on the sports team

31 people are in the band and are on the sports teams.

Now we add the number of people who play either and or both and then subtract it from how many students are in the school.

184 + 58 + 31 = 273

464 - 273 = 191

So here we see there are 191 students who are involved in neither band nor sports. Hope this helps. :)
