Q8. In a committee, 50 people speak French, 20 speak Spanish and 10 speak both Spanish and French. How many speak at least one of these two languages?

Answers (1)

n(french) = 50

n(spanish) = 20

n(speak both french and spanish) = 10

n(speak at least one of these two languages) = n(french) + n(spanish) - n(speak both french and spanish)

n(speak at least one of these two languages) = 50  + 20 - 10

n(speak at least one of these two languages) = 70 -10

n(speak at least one of these two languages) = 60

Hence,60 people speak at least one of these two languages.
