In a class there are 150 people who speak english and 125 people who speak hindi. 55 speak both languages and atleast one student speaks one language 1) How many students speak atleast one language?2) How many people speak only one language?

• Jul 1st, 2007

People who speak only English is 150-55=95
People who speak only Hindi is 125-55=70
so people who speak only one language is 95+70=165
At least one student speak one language. so total no of student (150+125)-55=220
Student speaking at least one language is 220
(Please tell me whether I am correct or not)

As 55 people speak both languages they are included in both English and Hindi speaking total, so to find out only English and Hindi speaking language just substract 55 from their respective total.

People who speak only English is 150-55=95
People who speak only Hindi is 125-55=70

So people who speak only one language is 95+70=65
At least one student speak one language. so total no. of student (150+125)-55=220
Student speaking at least one language is 220
