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

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
