  1. well, 24 are taking at least two languages, if you add the above taking 2 languages, you get 8+8+6=22, which means 2 are taking three languages.

    Pr(all three)=2/106

    well, 42 are taking french, but of those, 6 are taking german as well, 2 are taking spanish and german, and 8 are taking spanish with french.

    Pr(only French)= (42-6-2-8)/(106-24-2)
