Question #878
Generally a new program may have the following types of errors: LOGIC error (L), RUNTIME error (R) and SYNTAX error (S). The testing on the 80 new programs revealed; 18 programs had no errors; 5 programs had all three types errors; 14 programs had only LOGIC errors; 6 programs had only RUNTIME errors; 17 programs had both SYNTAX and RUNTIME errors; 12 programs had both SYNTAX and LOGIC errors. a) Use a Venn diagram to illustrate the above problem including the given numerical values. In your diagram, label with x and y the two region which cannot be enumerated. b) If the number of programs had SYNTAX error is the same as the number of programs had LOGIC errors, derive a pair of simultaneous equations in terms of x and y . c) Solve the equations in b).

Logic = Syntax:

14 + 12 + X - 5 = Y + 12 + 17 - 5

14 + 6 + Y + 12 + 17 + X - 10 = 80

X - Y = 25

X + Y = 41

Y = 8

X= 33
