# How Many Players Play Both Games.

There is 1200 boys in a hostel. Each of these play hockey or football or both. If 75 % boys play hockey and 45 % boys play football. How many players play both games.

- 200
- 280
- 250
- 240

**Answer: (4) 240**

**Explanation:-**

Total number of boys in a hostel = 1200

75% boys play hockey = 1200 x 75/100 = 900

45% boys play football = 1200 x 45/100 = 540

Number of boys which play both game = (900 + 540) – 1200

= 1440 – 1200 = 240

Hence, 240 players both games.
