    hi ive been asked a question where i had to find the number of magazines on all 3 topics. this is 3 circles and its the very middle region. ive worked this out. the number of magazines in the universal set that are not on any of the 3 topics is 17 and the next question is..

    Now suppose it is unknown how many magazines do not contain artciles on any of the 3 topics (as opposed to the specified number of 17 above). Determine how large this could be and how small this could be given all the other information.

    i have attached the venn diagram for this question.

    You need to post the original question. It's impossible to help with the information you have given.
