    Simple Venn Diagram Question

    Hi,

    Am I going insane, or is the attached Venn Diagram incorrect? How can the intersection of Tapes and Discs (10) be larger than the number of tapes (7)?

    Thanks!

    The interpretation that makes sense to me is that 7 people have tapes only, 12 people have discs only, and 10 people have both.
