Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@texaschic101 Please do not hesitate to show your work (Venn diagram) to better help @czarluc. Another way to approach it would be 43 students less 9 who like nothing =34 who like either or both. using \(E\cup M=E+ME\cap M\) which makes 34=23+18\(E\cap M\) Solve for \(E\cap M\).
