1. I assume you did this with Venn diagrams

We don't know how many watch all three, label that x
look at the intersection of the hockey and Football circles, it says 70 watch both
but we already have x accounted for, so place 70-x in the part showing only hockey and football
insert 45-x and 50-x in the other overlaps in the same way.
Now look at the hockey circle
We already have entries of x, 70-x, and 50-x
so the part showing ONLY hockey = 195 - x - (70-x) - (50-x)
= 75+x
repeat for the other two circles

now add them all up and set equal to 500
solve for x (it better be a whole positive number)

now you can fill in all the values, and all mysteries will be revealed.
