100 students were asked whether they are taking psychology or biology. 61 were taking pyschology, 18 were taking both and 12 were taking neither. how many were taking biology?

  • Math -

    Make a Venn diagram with two intersecting circles
    label "only biology" as x
    place 18 in the intersection
    place 43 in the "only psychology"
    place 12 outside the two circles

    x + 18 + 43 + 12 = 100
    x = 27

    So Biology was taken by 27+18 or 45 students
