To help the aspirants to ace this topic, we have made a PDF containing a comprehensive list of formulas, tips, and tricks that you can use to solve Venn diagram questions with ease and speed.

Consider three intersecting sets A, B and C. A represents all the elements in set A and A’ represents all the elements not in A. The image shows the different areas in a venn diagram and the meaning of each area.* $$ n(A \cup B)$$ = $$n(A)+n(B)-n(A \cap B)$$
$$n(A \cup B \cup C)$$ = $$n(A)+n(B)+n(C)$$-$$n(A \cap B)$$ - $$n(B \cap C)$$ - $$n(A \cap C)$$ + $$n(A \cap B \cap C)$$
Only A can be translated as A and not B and not C
Similarly, A’ and B’ and C’ = Universal set – (A or B or C)
