Accepted Solution

A:

Answer:a) 2b) 3c) 10Step-by-step explanation:Let U represent the universal set of all compact discs Steve has in his collectionlet S represent the set of compact discs on which Simon sings andlet G represent the set of compact discs on which Garfunkel sings⇒Given data can now be represented as:n(U) = 25n(S∩G) = 5n(S) = 7n(G) = 8n((S∪G)') = 15 (where A' represents complement of set A)a)n(S-G) = n(S) - n(S∩G) = 7-5 = 2b)n(G-S) = n(G) - n(S∩G) = 8-5 = 3c)number of compact discs featuring at least one of the two artists = total number of compact discs - the number of compact discs not featuring any of the artists = n(U) - n((S∪G)') = 25 - 15 = 10
