What fraction of students enjoys basketball and soccer?

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

  • Math -

    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?

  • Math -

    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.
