Solution:

 

Given: U=260 |A|=64 |B|=94 |C|=58 |A ∩ C| = 28 |A ∩ B| = 26 |B ∩ C| = 22 |A ∩ B ∩ C| = 14

 

 

 

|A U B U C| =? |B1| =?

 

|A U B U C| = A + B + C – |A ∩ B| – |B ∩ C| – |A ∩ C| + |A ∩ B ∩ C|

 

=   64 + 94 + 58 – 26 – 22 – 28 + 14

 

=   154

 

i.   |A U B U C| = U – |A U B U C|

 

=   260 – 154

 

=   106

 

ii.|B1| = |B| - |B ∩ C| - |B ∩ A| + |A ∩ B ∩ C|

 

= 94 – 22 – 26 + 14 = 60
