In a Venn diagram you draw 3 circles overlapping each other. Name them track, basketball and football respectively. First write 6 where all three circles intersect. That is the number of students that play all three. Now 15 students participate in football and basketball which includes the 6 that participate in all three, so we deduct 6 from 15 and right 9 in the space where basketball and football intersect only. Likewise 9 participate in track and football so we deduct 6 from that and write 3 in the space where track and football intersect only. Same goes for Basketball and track, 8 participants so we deduct 6 and write 2 in the space of intersection of basketball and track only. Now Track has a total of 15 students so we deduct 2 that play track and basketball, then deduct 6 that play both, and deduct 3 that play track and football. This leaves with 4 students that just participate in track.  Basketball has a total of 25 out of which 6 play all three, 9 play basketball and football, 2 participate in Basketball and Track.    Out of the 25 student in football, 6 participate in all three, 9 participate in football and basketball and 2 participate in basketball and track, this leaves us with 7 (25-6-9-3) students who play just football.    When we add all the numbers which is 4 (only track), 8(only basketball), 7 (only football), 2 (basketball and track), 9 (football and basketball), 3 (football and track), 6 (all three), we get a total of 39 students. Deducting 39 from 70 will give us the total number of students that don't participate in any i.e. 31 students.
