50 students traveled to Europe, last year. Of these, 12 visited Amsterdam, 13 went to Berlin, and 15 were in Copenhagen. Some visited two cities: 3 visited both Amsterdam and Berlin, 6 visited Amsterdam and Copenhagen, and 5 visited Berlin and Copenhagen. But only 2 visited all three cities.
Question : How many students visited Copenhagen, but neither Amsterdam nor Berlin?
I have done the graph and I think the answer is 6 but I would like to learn how to compute it.

Let | A | , | B | , and | C | denote, respectively, the number of students who visited Amsterdam, Berlin, and Copenhagen.To find the number of students who visited Copenhagen but neither Amsterdam nor Berlin, we must subtract the number of students who have visited both Amsterdam and Copenhagen and the number of students who have visited both Berlin and Copenhagen from the number who have visited Copenhagen. However, if we do that, we will have subtracted those students who have visited all three cities twice, once for each city they visited in addition to Copenhagen. We only want to subtract them once, so we must add them back. Hence, the number of students who visited Copenhagen but neither Amsterdam nor Berlin is
| C | | A C | | B C | + | A B C | = 15 6 5 + 2 = 6
as you found.

I am to create a six character password that consists of 2 lowercase letters and 4 numbers. The letters and numbers can be mixed up in any order and I can also repeat the same number and letter as well. How many possible passwords are there?
What I have pieced together so far:
Well, from the fundamental counting principle, we would definitely need 26 2 × 10 4 but obviously this is not all the possibilities since I can rearrange letters and numbers. Since it is a password the order matters so would I try and do a permuation of some sort like 6 P 2 since there are 6 slots to try to rearrange 2 objects (letters)?

Question-2:
Prove that each positive integer can be written in form of 2 k q, where q is odd, and k is a non-negative integer.
Hint: Use induction, and the fact that the product of two odd numbers is odd.
Question-6:
( x + y ) n = k = 0 n C ( n , k ) x n k y k = n 2 + n 2
Prove the above statement by using induction on n.
Question-7:
Let n 1 , n 2 , . . . , n t be positive integers. Show that if n 1 + n 2 + . . . + n t t + 1 objects are placed into t boxes, then for some i, i = 1 , 2 , 3 , . . . , t , the ith box contains at least n i objects.

How many four-digit numbers can be formed from the set { 0 , 1 , 2 , 3 , , 10 } if zero cannot be the first digit and the given conditions are to be satisfied

1. Repetitions are allowed and the number must be even.
2. Repetitions are allowed and the number must be divisible by 5.
3. The number must be odd and less than 4000 with repetition allowed.

a. my solution is 2*10*10*10= 2000 because 2 is a even number and there are 10 numbers excluding 0 in set {0,1,2,3..10} and it is 4 digits that's why 2*10*10*10 b.same in letter A but 2 is changed into 5 because it must be divisible by 5 so it is 5*10*10*10=5000 c.same to A and B... Only I changed it to 3 so my solution is 3*10*10*10 = 3000
