In a class of 60 students,
Question:

In a class of 60 students, 25 students play cricket and 20 students play tennis, and 10 students play both the games. Find the number of students who play neither?

Solution:

According to the question,

Total number of students = 60

Students who play cricket = 25

Students who play tennis = 20

Students who play both the games = 10

To find: number of students who play neither

Let the total number of students = S

Let the number of students who play cricket = C

Let the number of students who play tennis = T

n(S) = 60, n(C) = 25, n(T) = 20, n(C ∩ T) = 10

So, Number of students who play either of them,

n(C ∪ T) = n(C) + n(T) – n(C ∩ T)

= 25 + 20 – 10

= 35

Hence, Number of student who play neither = Total – n(C ∪ T)

= 60 – 35

= 25

Therefore, there are 25 students who play neither cricket nor tennis.
