Probability Help!!!
A survey of 1000 students in a local high school revealed the following information:
450 students are male
800 plan to attend college
300 are immigrants
350 are males who plan to attend college
250 are immigrants who plan to attend college
120 are immigrant males

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes i got 80 as well... which is the right answer... but the next problem asks a similar thing, but the only way i can figure them out is drawing these diagrams... but i guess i want to make sure there isn't some equation or formula that i need to know just in case there is a question in which it asks for the intersection of 3 things but for whatever reason am unable to draw a diagram.
