# In a group of people 72% drink coffee, 44% drink If each person drinks coffee

In a group of people 72% drink coffee, 44% drink If each person drinks coffee or tea and if there are 40 persons who drink both then the number of people in the group is

- 250
- 300
- 200
- 450

**Answer: (1) 250**

**Solution:-**

Percentage of people who drink coffee = 72%

Percentage of people who drink tea = 44%

Then, percentage of people who drink both coffee and tea = (72 + 44) – 100

= 116 – 100

= 16%

Let the number people of in a group be X

Then, the number of people who drink both coffee and tea = 40

Then, X x 16/100 = 40

4 X/25 = 40

4 X = 40 x 25

X = 250

Then, the number of people in the group is 250.

Hence, the correct answer is option (1) 250.
