Question (1)

If X and Y are two sets such that n(X) = 17, n(Y) = 23 and n(X ∪ Y) = 38, find n(X ∩Y).Solution

n( X ∪ Y ) = n(X) + n(Y) - n( X ∩ Y)38 = 17 + 23 - - n( X ∩ Y)

n( X ∩ Y) = 40 - 38

n( X ∩ Y) = 2

Question (2)

If X and Y are two sets such that X ∪Y has 18 elements, X has 8 elements and Y has 15 elements; how many elements does X ∩Y have?Solution

n( X ∪ Y ) = n(X) + n(Y) - n( X ∩ Y)18 = 8 + 15 - - n( X ∩ Y)

n( X ∩ Y) = 23 - 18

n( X ∩ Y) =5

Question (3)

In a group of 400 people, 250 can speak Hindi and 200 can speak English. How many people can speak both Hindi and English?Solution

H : person speak Hindi. n(H) = 250,E : person speak English . n(E) = 200,

n( H ∪ E ) = 400, Find n( H ∩ E).

n( H ∪ E ) = n(H) + n(E) - n( H ∩ E)

400 = 250 + 200 - n( H ∩ E)

n(H ∩E) = 450 - 400

n( H ∩ E) = 50

So 50 people can speak both Hindi and English.

Question (4)

If S and T are two sets such that S has 21 elements, T has 32 elements, and S ∩ T has 11 elements, how many elements does S ∪ T have?Solution

n(S) = 21, n(T) = 32, n(s ∩ T) = 11.n(S ∪ T ) = n(S) + n(T) - n( S ∩ T)

= 21 + 32 - 11

= 42.

Question (5)

If X and Y are two sets such that X has 40 elements, X ∪Y has 60 elements and X ∩Y has 10 elements, how many elements does Y have?Solution

n(X) = 40, n(X ∪ Y) = 60, n(X ∩ Y) = 10. find n(Y).n( X ∪ Y ) = n(X) + n(Y) - n( X ∩ Y)

60 = 40 +n(Y) - 10

n( Y) = 60 - 30

n( Y) = 30

Y has 30 elements.

Question (6)

In a group of 70 people, 37 like coffee, 52 like tea, and each person likes at least one of the two drinks. How many people like both coffee and tea?Solution

C ; person like coffee, n(C) = 37T : person likes tea. n(T) = 52

Since each person likes at least one of the two drinks.and there are 70 people in a group. n(C ∪ T ) = 70.

Find n(C ∩ T).

n(C ∪ T ) = n(C) + n(T) - n( C ∩ T)

70 = 37 + 52 - n( C ∩ T)

70 = 89 n( C ∩ T)

n( C ∩ T) = 89 - 70

= 19

19 persons like both coffee and tea.

Question (7)

In a group of 65 people, 40 like cricket, 10 like both cricket and tennis. How many like tennis only and not cricket? How many like tennis?Solution

C : people likes Cricket. , n(C) = 40.T : people likes tennis., n(T) = ?

n(C ∪ T)= 65, n( C ∩ T ) = 10

n(C ∪ T ) = n(C) + n(T) - n( C ∩ T)

65 = 40 + n(T) - 10

65 = 30+ n( T)

n(T) = 65 - 30

= 35

So 35 likes tennis. number of person like tennis not cricket = n(T ∩ C')

= n(T) - n( T ∩ C)

= 35 - 10

= 25.

So 25 persons like only tennis not cricket. and 35 likes tennis.

Question (8)

In a committee, 50 people speak French, 20 speak Spanish and 10 speak both Spanish and French. How many speak at least one of these two languages?Solution

Let F : person speaks French , n(F) = 50S : person speaks Spanish, n(S) = 20

n( F ∩ S ) = 10, Find n( F ∪ S ).

n( F ∪ S ) = n(F) + n(S) - n( F ∩ S)

= 50 + 20 - 10

= 60

60 people speaks atleast one of these two languages.
