Where on the diagram is this sentence? " In total there were 170 students who were absent for at least one of the three days."

But 170 only represents at least one of the three days, meaning that there can be 170 students who are absent for one, two, or three days respectively

There could have been at most 90 students absent each of the three days because only 90 students were absent on Wednesday an it is possible they were all absent on the other days as well because more than 90 students were absent on Monday and Tuesday.
