Note: Im assuming that all the students have to take a class, any moderators please correct me if my assumption is wrong, I just assumed becuase otherwise I thought the problem was unsolvable.



The number of students in only math club is \(a-b\).

Therefore, the number of students in science club is \(c - (a - b) = c-a+b\)

The number of people in only science club is \(c-a\)

The number of students that are only in 1 course is \(c-b\)
