Given,

 

Total number of people = 50 lakhs

Percentage of people who like cricket = 60%

Percentage of people who like football = 30%

Since remaining people like other games,

\therefore Percentage of people who like other games = {100 - (60 + 30) } = (100 - 90) = 10%

10% of the people like other games.

Now,

 

\therefore Number of people who like cricket = 60% of 50 lakhs

=\frac{60}{100}\times50= 30 lakhs

\therefore Number of people who like football = 30% of 50 lakhs

=\frac{30}{100}\times50= 15 lakhs 

\therefore Number of people who like other games = 10% of 50 lakhs

=\frac{10}{100}\times50 = 5 lakhs
