Draw a Venn diagram with 3 overlapping circles, labelling the four bits that overlap as A, B, C, D.

The information given in the question then allows you to form some equations for A, B, C and D. Can you see how?

Let *x* be the number of people enrolled in all three classes. Then:

170−

*x*are enrolled in art and drama but not piano,150−

*x*are enrolled in drama and piano but not art,300−

*x*are enrolled in piano and art but not drama.

Now that you have split the numbers into non-overlapping groups, you can add them up:
