    n(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
