43 students are taking science ONLY.
95-52=43
21 students are taking math ONLY.
73-52=21
52 students are taking both math AND science. 31 students taking neither.
147-43-21-52=31
Probability of students taking math, science, or both out of the 147 students.
P(taking math or science or both)= (43+21+52)/(147)
(116)/(147)
