# In a group of 70 people, 37 like coffee, 52 like tea and each person likes at least one of the two drinks. How many people like both coffee and tea?

**Solution:**

Let C denote the set of people who like coffee, and T denote the set of people who like tea.

It is given that in a group of 70 people, 37 like coffee, 52 like tea and each person likes at least one of the two drinks.

Therefore,

n (C) = 37, n (T) = 52 and n (C υ T) = 70.

We know that n(C υ T) is given by,

n (C υ T) = n (C) + n (T) - n (C ∩ T)

From this,

n (C ∩ T) = n (C) + n (T ) - n (C υ T)

= 37 + 52 - 70

= 89 - 70

= 19

Therefore, 19 people like both coffee and tea.
