# In a survey of 600 students in a school, 150 students were found to be taking tea and 225 taking coffee, 100 were taking both tea and coffee. Find how many students were taking neither tea nor coffee?

**Solution:**

Let U be the set of all students who took part in the survey T be the set of students taking tea.

C be the set of students taking coffee.

Students taking neither tea nor coffee, (T' ∩ C')

It is given that

n (U) = 600, n (T) = 150, n (C) = 225, n (T ∩ C) = 100

We know that

n (T' ∩ C') = n (T υ C)'

= n (U) - n (T υ C)

= n (U ) - [n (T) + n (C) - n (T ∩ C)]

= 600 – [150 + 225 - 100]

= 600 - 275

= 325

Hence, 325 students were taking neither tea nor coffee.
