(A) None of the children necessarily has both.
(B) Exactly 5
(C) Exactly 6
(D) At least 6 and at most 15 Tutorial Using this classification we can construct a Venn Diagram to help us solve this problem.
Dog only
Cat only
Both Dog and Cat
Neither Dog nor Cat Total children: Neither: Dog: Cat: Both:

(A) None of the children necessarily has both.
(B) Exactly 5
(C) Exactly 6
(D) At least 6 and at most 15 Tutorial For this problem, it is important that the sum of the number of children in each of the four classifications does not exceed 29.

(B) Exactly 5
(C) Exactly 6
(D) At least 6 and at most 15 Tutorial If 20 children have a dog only and…
15 children have a cat only,
then based this scenario there would be already be 35 total children in the class.
20 + 15 = 35
Therefore, at least 6 children must have both a dog and a cat.
35 – 29 = 6
20 15 35 6

(A) None of the children necessarily has both.
(B) Exactly 5
(C) Exactly 6
(D) At least 6 and at most 15 Tutorial By changing the number of children who have both a dog and a cat, we can see that this number can increase from 6.

(D) At least 6 and at most 15 Tutorial Since 15 students have a cat, the maximum number of children who can have both a dog and a cat is 15 children.
That is, all children who have a cat also have a dog.
