### Explanatory Answer | GMAT Set Theory Practice

#### Objective: Percentage of students who enrolled for neither of the two subjects

Let A be the set of students who enrolled for Math.
Let B be the set of students who enrolled for Economics.
(A ∪ B) is the set of students who have enrolled for at least one of the two subjects.
And (A ∩ B) is the set of students who have enrolled for both Math and Economics.

n(A ∪ B) = n(A) + n(B) - n(A ∩ B)

In this question, all n(A), n(B), n(A ∪ B), and (A ∩ B) are expressed in percentage terms.

n(A ∪ B) = 40 + 70 - 15 = 95%

That is 95% of the students have enrolled for at least one of the two subjects Math or Economics.

Therefore, the balance (100 - 95)% = 5% of the students have not enrolled for either of the two subjects.
