**Disclaimer!!!:** **I was looking over someone's website
and wanted to give my version of the answer...why don't you figure
out which is right and why!!! (I will not say who gave which answer...)**

__Solution
#1__

**The solution to this problem can best be displayed in a venn
diagram. I used Microsoft Word to draw a venn diagram and to plug
in the information from the problem. The problem states that 11
students have blue eyes, 15 students have brown hair, and 3 students
have both. The total of those three categories accounts for 29
students. We know there are 30 students, this leaves 1 student
without blue eyes or brown hair. See the venn diagram below:**
