Accepted Solution

A:
Answer:20 people did not like any of three flavour.Step-by-step explanation:Let V represents the number of people who like vanilla, S represent the number of people who like strawberry and C represents the number of people who like chocolate,Given,Total number of people = 100,n(V) = 55, n(C) = 30,  n(S) = 40, n(V∩C) = 15,  n(C∩S) =10, n(V∩S) = 10n(V∩S∩C) = 5,Thus, the number of people who only like only vanilla = n(V) - n(V∩C) - n(V∩S) - n(V∩S∩C)= 55 - 15 - 10 - 5 = 55 - 30 = 25,Similarly, the number of people who like only chocolate = 0,The number of people who like only strawberry = 15,Hence, the number of people who do not like any flavor = Total number of people - people who only like vanilla - people who only like chocolate - people who only like strawberry - n(V∩C) - n(C∩S) - n(V∩S) - n(V∩S∩C) = 100 - 25 - 0 - 15 - 15 - 10 - 10 - 5= 100 - 80= 20
