2010 AMC 8 Problems/Problem 1

Problem

At Euclid Middle School the mathematics teachers are Mrs. Germain, Mr. Newton, and Mrs. Young. There are $11$ students in Mrs. Germain's class, $8$ students in Mr. Newton's class, and $9$ students in Mrs. Young's class taking the AMC $8$ this year. How many mathematics students at Euclid Middle School are taking the contest?

$\textbf{(A)}\ 26 \qquad\textbf{(B)}\ 27\qquad\textbf{(C)}\ 28\qquad\textbf{(D)}\ 29\qquad\textbf{(E)}\ 30$

Solution

Given that these are the only math teachers at Euclid Middle School and we are told how many from each class are taking the AMC 8, we simply add the three numbers to find the total. $11+8+9=\boxed{\textbf{(C)}\ 28}$
