A and B are two sets of 36 elements such that n(A-B)=20+x, n(B-A)=3x and n(A intersection B)=x+1. Draw a venn diagram to illustrate this information. Find (1) the value of x (2) n(A union B) experts please don't give Links and answer accordingly

In this question you have not given that n(A) = n(B). so taking the same and solving

Venn diagram:


n(a-b)=20+x

n(b-a)=3x

n(a b) =x+1

We know that

n(a-b) = n(a)-n(a b)

∴n(a) = n(a-b) + n(a b)

= (20+x) + (x + 1)

= 2x + 21

Similarly, n(b) = n(b-a) + n(a b)

=3x + (x+1)

=4x + 1

According to the question,

n(a) = n(b)

∴2x + 21 = 4x +1

⇒2x = 20

x = 10
