There are 42 people in pilates class. Today, 36 of them brought yoga mats, 26 of them brought eco-friendly water bottles, and 28 of them remembered to bring both yoga mats and water bottles. How many people had to suffer through class having neither a yoga mat nor a water bottle?

Your numbers don't 'work' ....  if 26 brought water bottles....how can 28 have brought water bottles and yoga mats ?

You're right! If we switch numbers 26 and 28, it's gonna work like a charm.smiley

 

                                     42  people

            mats  36    |    mats+water 26    |   water  28

       mats only 10  |    mats+water  26   |   water only  2

 

                      42 - ( 10 + 26 + 2 ) = 4
