# 3. In a class of 40 boys, 18 passed Business Mathematics, 19 passed Accounts, 10 passed Economics, 6 passed Accounts only, 5 passed Business Mathematics and Accounts only, 2 Passed Accounts and Economics only. How many passed in all three papers.

## To find the number of students who passed all three papers, we need to use the principle of inclusion-exclusion.

Step 1: Start by adding the number of students who passed each paper individually:
- 18 students passed Business Mathematics.
- 19 students passed Accounts.
- 10 students passed Economics.

Step 2: Subtract the number of students who passed two papers at a time.
- 6 students passed only Accounts.
- 5 students passed only Business Mathematics and Accounts.
- 2 students passed only Accounts and Economics.

From this, we can calculate the number of students who passed exactly two papers, which is 13 students.

Step 3: Now, subtract the number of students who passed only two papers from the total number of students who passed each paper individually:
- There are 18 - 5 = 13 students who passed Business Mathematics only.
- There are 19 - 6 - 5 = 8 students who passed Accounts only.
- There are 10 - 2 = 8 students who passed Economics only.

Step 4: Finally, subtract the number of students who passed only one or two papers from the total number of students in the class.
- 40 - (13 + 8 + 8 + 13) = 40 - 42 = -2
