In a survey of 60 people, it was found that 25 people read newspaper H, 26 read newspaper T, 26 read newspaper I, 9 read both H and I, 11 read both H and T, 8 read both T and I, 3 read all three newspapers. Find:

**(i) **The number of people who read at least one of the newspapers.

**(ii)** The number of people who read exactly one newspaper

Asked by Abhisek | 2 years ago | 213

**(i)** Let us assume that,

A = the set of people who read newspaper H

B = the set of people who read newspaper T

C = the set of people who read newspaper I

According to the question,

Number of people who read newspaper H, n (A) = 25

Number of people who read newspaper T, n (B) = 26

Number of people who read the newspaper I, n (C) = 26

Number of people who read both newspaper H and I, n (A ∩ C) = 9

Number of people who read both newspaper H and T, n (A ∩ B) = 11

Number of people who read both newspaper T and I, n (B ∩ C) = 8

And, Number of people who read all three newspaper H, T and I, n (A ∩ B ∩ C) = 3

Now, we have to find the number of people who read at least one of the newspaper

we get.

= 25 + 26 + 26 – 11 – 8 – 9 + 3

= 80 – 28

= 52

There are a total of 52 students who read at least one newspaper.

**(ii) **Let us assume that,

a = the number of people who read newspapers H and T only

b = the number of people who read newspapers I and H only

c = the number of people who read newspapers T and I only

d = the number of people who read all three newspapers

According to the question,

D = n(A ∩ B ∩ C) = 3

Now, we have:

n(A ∩ B) = a + d

n(B ∩ C) = c + d

And,

n(C ∩ A) = b + d

a + d + c +d + b + d = 11 + 8 + 9

a + b + c + d = 28 – 2d

= 28 – 6

= 22

Number of people read exactly one newspaper = 52 – 22

= 30 people
