There are 3 clubs A, B & C in a town with 40, 50 & 60 members respectively. While 10 people are members of all 3 clubs, 70 are members in only one club. How many belong to exactly two clubs?
We know that x + y + z = T and x + 2y + 3z = R, where
x = number of members belonging to exactly 1 set = 70
y = number of members belonging to exactly 2 sets
z = number of members belonging to exactly 3 sets = 10
T = Total number of members
R = Repeated total of all the members = (40+50+60) = 150
Thus we have two equations and two unknowns. Solving this we get y = 25
So, 25 people belong to exactly 2 clubs.
