  2. If you are studying this topic , you must have learned about Venn diagrams.

    Draw 3 overlapping circles.
    label the intersection of all 3 as x
    low look at the double courses
    e.g. 20 study physics and math. That would be the intersection of
    the physics and the math circles, which already contains an x
    So label the part of physics and math but not chemistry as 20-x

    continue likewise for the rest of the data.
    You should have all the regions filled in.

    Answers can now be written by simply looking at these regions.
