Could somebody answer these questions for me and give me the original formula...My online course did a terrible job on this section.. they dont tell you how to solve anything.

I've attached a Venn diagram (for further information you may look at Euler diagram) to demonstrate the result.

Next problem will follow (I haven't much time now)

Second problem solution:

285 students attend both dances, so first dance attended 285 + 455 students and second attended 285 + 155. So total number of students who have been to both dances is 285+(455+155) which is 895 students.

Totally 605 students did not attend both dances.
