Question 16.
If n(A ∪ B ∪ C) = 100, n(A) = 4x, n(B) = 6x, n(C) = 5x, n(A ∩ B) = 20, n(B ∩ C) = 15, n(A ∩ C) = 25 and n(A ∩ B ∩ C)= 10 , then the value of x is
(A) 10
(B) 15
(C) 25
(D) 30
(A) 10
Hint:
n(A ∪ B ∪ C) = n(A) + n(B) + n(C) – n(A ∩ B) – n(B ∩ C) – n(C ∩ A) + n(A ∩ B ∩ C)
100 = 4x + 6x + 5x – 20 – 15 – 25 + 10
