Can you please show me how to do this question by setting up an overlapping set matrix?

We do NOT have any overlapping sets here. Instead, we have one set: ALL STUDENTS and two subsets: STUDY FRENCH, STUDY CANTONESE. The question statement implies that these subsets do NOT overlap (intersect).

(The proportions are yet unknown).Statement (1) gives us:

*x* + 4

*x* = 60

Statement (2) gives us:

*y* + (

*y* – 36) = 60
