Sol: The total students is clubs can be found out using the relation of venn - diagram
As per question
only drama club = 60 i.e., a = 60
only dance club = 80 i.e., c = 80
only maths club = 30 i.e., g = 30
all time clubs = 2 i.e., e = 2
both Drama and Dance Clubs = 40 i.e., b + e = 40 ? b = 40 – 2 = 38
both Dance and Maths Clubs = 12 i.e., e + f = 12 ? f = 12 – 2 = 10
both Drama and Maths clubs = 7 i.e., d + e = 7 ? d = 7–2 = 5
Thus, three students to who are in at least one of the clubs = a+b+c+d+e+f+g
= 60+38+80+5+2+10+30 = 225
This represents only 25% of students as remaining 75% are not in only of the clubs, So,
25% of total students = 225
