Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0n(P) = 50 (total no. of employees) n(S) = 18 (no. of people taking subway) n(B) = 12 (no. of people taking the bus) N(S x B) = 7 (taking both subway and bus) a. take subway or bus = N(S) + N(B)  N(S x B) = 18 + 12  7 = 23 b. take only bus = N(B)  n(S x B) = 12  7 = 5 c. take either bus or subway = same as eqn a d. get to work by other means = n(P)  eqn (a) = 50  23 = 27
