Solution

## (i) Let n(P) denote total number of peoplen(H) denote number of people who read newspaper Hn(T) denote number of people who read newspaper T andn(I) denote number of people who read newspaper IThen, n(P) = 60, n(H) = 25, n(T) = 26, n(I) = 26n(H∩I)=9,n(H∩T)=11,n(T∩1)=8,n(H∩T∩I)=3We need to find the number of people who read atleast one of the newspaper, i.e., n(H or T or I), i.e., n(H∪T∪I), i.e., n(H∪T∪I) we know that if A, B, C are 3 sets , then,n(A∪B∪C)=n(A)+n(B)+n(C)−n(A∩B)−n(B∩C)−n(A∩C)+n(A∩B∩C)n(H∪T∪I)=n(H)+n(T)+n(I)−n(H∩T)−n(T∩I)+n(H∩T∩I)= 25+26+26-9-11-8+3= 25+52-28+3= 25+52-25=52Hence, 52 people read at least one of the newspaper.(ii) Now, we have to calculate the number of people who read exactly one newspaper.We have, n(H)+n(T)+n(I)−2n(H∩T)−2n(T∩I)−2n(H∩I)+3n(H∩T∩I)= 25+26+26-22-16-18+9= 30Thus, 30 people can read exactly one newspaper.
