Of the 125 students
in an elementary school, some only play checkers, some only play chess, and
some play both. 89 students play checkers and 45 students play checkers and
chess. How many students in the school play chess?
Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
Total number of students = 125 students
Those who play checkers = 89 students ( of these 89 some play chess also)
Those who play Both checkers and chess = 45 students
Therefore those who play checkers only are; 89 - 45 = 44 students
Thus those who play chess only are; 125 - 89 = 36 students
Therefore the number of students that play chess is; 36 + 45 = 81 students
