Solution :-

Let us assume that,

U = the set of all students who took part in the survey

T = the set of students taking tea

C = the set of the students taking coffee

Total number of students in a school, n (U) = 600

Number of students taking tea, n (T) = 150

Number of students taking coffee, n (C) = 225

Also, n (T ∩ C) = 100

Now, we have to find that number of students taking neither coffee nor tea i.e. n (T ∩ C’)

According to the question,

n ( T ∩ C’ )= n( T ∩ C )’

= n (U) – n (T ∩ C)

= n (U) – [n (T) + n(C) – n (T ∩ C)]

= 600 – [150 + 225 – 100]

= 600 – 275

= 325

Number of students taking neither coffee nor tea = 325 students
