Let

n(A)= like algebra =30

n(T)= like trigonometry=21

n(A and B)=8

A'= Not lke algebra

B'=Not like trigonoetry

`n(AuuB)=n(A)+n(B)-n(AnnB)`

`=30+21-8=43`

There are 50 students , in which 43 likes either algebra or trigonometry or both.

Thus

50-43=7

So 7 students do not like either algebra or trigonometry or both.
