Are you supposed to do these with Venn diagrams?

If so, draw two intersecting circles, name one P the other one C (for pod and car)

place 20 in the intersection of the two circles

There are supposed to be 60 in the P circle, but we already have 20 of those accounted for.

So put 40 in the P circle which does not intersect the other circle

There are supposed to be 50 in the C circle, but we have already placed 20 of those, so put 30 in the C circle not intersecting with any of the other.

number of students in the C and P circle , but not in the intersection is

40 + 30 = 70

The total I see in both circles is 40 + 20 + 30 = 90

But 100 students were surveyed, so

10 students are not in either circle, thus

10 students do not own a car or Ipod
