    12 students are taking algebra 1 and out of those 12 4 of them are only taking algebra 1. there are also 18 students taking algebra 2 and out of those 18 only 10 of them are only taking algebra 2. so we add 4+10+8 and get 22. so 22 students are taking algebra 1 or 2. now we subtract 60-22 to get the number of students who are taking neither of these subjects. 38
