In a survey it was found that 21 people liked product A, 26 liked product B and 29 liked product C. If 14 people liked products A and B, 12 people liked products C and A, 14 people liked products B and C and 8 liked all the three products. Find how many liked product C only.

Let A, B and C = the set of people who like product A, product B and product C respectively.

Now, according to the question,

Number of students who like product A, n (A) = 21

Number of students who like product B, n (B) = 26

Number of students who like product C, n (C) = 29

Number of students who like both products A and B, n (A ∩ B) = 14

Number of students who like both products A and C, n(C ∩ A) = 12

Number of students who like both product C and B, n (B ∩ C) = 14

Number of students who like all three product, n (A ∩ B ∩ C) = 8

From the Venn diagram, we get,

Number of students who only like product C = {29 – (4 + 8 + 6)}

= {29 – 18}

= 11 students
