There are 200 individuals with a skin disorder, 120 had been exposed to the chemical c1, 50 to chemical c2, and 30 to both chemicals c1 and c2. find the number of individuals exposed to chemical c2​ but not chemical c1​

Solution:

Let U= set of individuals suffering from the skin disorder

A= set of individuals exposed to the chemical c1

B= set of individual exposed to the chemical c2

Then n(u)=200, n(A)=120, n(B)=50 and n(A∩B)=30

Similarly, B=(B−A)∪(A∩B)

∴n(B)=n(B−A)+n(A∩B)

∵n(B−A)∩(A∩B)=φ

∴n(B−A)=n(B)−n(A∩B)

=50−30=20

Hence, 20 individuals exposed to chemical c2​ but not to chemical c1
