Since you have asked multiple questions, we will solve the first question for you. If you want any specific question to be solved then please specify the question number or post only that question.
1)
Inclusion-Exclusion Formula:
If A and B are any two finite sets, then $$\displaystyle{\left|{{A}\cup{B}}\right|}={\left|{{A}}\right|}+{\left|{{B}}\right|}-{\left|{{A}\cap{B}}\right|}$$.
Let H, M be the sets of seniors whose major is History and Math respectively.
It is given that 523 seniors are history majors or math majors or both.
Thus, $$\displaystyle{\left|{{H}\cup{M}}\right|}={523}$$.
It is given that 100 seniors are math majors.
Thus, $$\displaystyle{\left|{{M}}\right|}={100}$$.
The number of seniors majoring in math and history are 33.
Thus, $$\displaystyle{\left|{{H}\cap{M}}\right|}={33}$$.
Step 2
Evaluate the number of seniors majoring in History using Inclusion-Exclusion principle as follows.
$$\displaystyle{\left|{{H}\cup{M}}\right|}={\left|{{H}}\right|}+{\left|{{M}}\right|}-{\left|{{H}\cap{M}}\right|}$$
$$\displaystyle{523}={\left|{{H}}\right|}+{100}-{33}$$
$$\displaystyle{523}={\left|{{H}}\right|}+{67}$$
$$\displaystyle{\left|{{H}}\right|}={523}-{67}$$
$$\displaystyle{\left|{{H}}\right|}={456}$$
Therefore, the number of seniors majoring in History is 456.

### Relevant Questions In fall 2014, 38% of applicants with a Math SAT of 700 or more were admitted by a certain university, while 12% with a Math SAT of less than 700 were admitted. Further, 32% of all applicants had a Math SAT score of 700 or more. What percentage of admitted applicants had a Math SAT of 700 or more? (Round your answer to the nearest percentage point.) In one Tech region the number of students in Math 136 is 20% more than the number of students in Math 123. If there are 480 students in Maths 136, how many students are in Math 123? At a High school, 70% of the seniors have taken an advance calculus course. Of those who have taken Advanced Calculus, 60% will apply for a Pre-Health science major when they apply for college admission. Of those who have not taken advanced calculus, 40% will apply for a Pre-Health science major when they apply for college admission. A senior is selected at random. What is the probability that the senior have taken advanced calculus, given that the senior will apply for a pre-health science major? There is currently a global pandemic and many researchers and scientists are working assiduously to find a vaccine. Assume that Advanced Researcher, a company that is currently testing a few vaccines confirms an 80% chance of effectiveness of one of their vaccines.
Which probability distribution would you use to calculate the probability of success or failure of Advanced Researcher's vaccine if it were to be administered to people in society? If the height of a pyramid is increased by 60% and the length of an arm of a square is reduced by 35%, how much will the size of the pyramid increase or decrease? A bipolar alkaline water electrolyzer stack module comprises 160 electrolytic cells that have an effective cell area of $$\displaystyle{2}{m}^{{2}}$$. At nominal operation, the current density for a single cell of the electrolyzer stack is 0.40 $$\displaystyle\frac{{A}}{{c}}{m}^{{2}}$$. The nominal operating temperature of the water electrolyzer stack is $$\displaystyle{70}^{\circ}$$ C and pressure 1 bar. The voltage over a single electrolytic cell is 1.96 V at nominal load and 1.78 V at 50% of nominal load. The Faraday efficiency of the water electrolyzer stack is 95% at nominal current density, but at 50% of nominal load, the Faraday efficiency decreases to 80%.
Calculate the nominal stack voltage:
Calculate the nominal stack current:
Calculate the nominal power on the water electrolyzer stack:  $$\begin{array}{c|cc|c} &\text{Physics}&\text{Chemistry}&\text{Total}\\ \hline \text{Males}&100&68&168\\ \text{Females}&71&61&132\\ \hline \text{Total}&171&129&300 \end{array}\$$ The rate of change of the volume of a snowball that is melting is proportional to the surface area of the snowball. Suppose the snowball is perfectly spherical. Then the volume (in centimeters cubed) of a ball of radius r centimeters is $$\displaystyle\frac{{4}}{{3}}\pi{r}^{{3}}$$. The surface area is $$\displaystyle{4}\pi{r}^{{2}}$$.Set up the differential equation for how r is changing. Then, suppose that at time t = 0 minutes, the radius is 10 centimeters. After 5 minutes, the radius is 8 centimeters. At what time t will the snowball be completely melted.
