  1. Best done with a Venn diagram.
    For the intersection of all three circles which I called F, H, and B, label it x
    Then fill in the regions of the circle using the given data.
    e.g. I labeled the part which is only hockey and basketball as 50-x
    and the part which is only hockey as 195 - (70-x + x + 50-x)
    = 75 +x

    Finally, place 50 outside the 3 circles

    Now add them all up and set it equal to 500
    Solve for x

    Once you have x, all separate parts are found
