Exercise 8: Make sense of problems

• 40 students - for Chicken fingers
• 20 students - for Salad

To find the number of students who did not want either, simply combine the number of students who wants chicken fingers and salad and subratc it by the total number of student/s. We can represent this by the formula :

t = total number of students c = students who preferer chicken fingers s = students who prefer salad

• $t - (c + s)$
• $100 - (42 + 24)$
• $100 - (66)$
• $=34$
