Use sets to solve the problem.

Monticello residents were surveyed concerning their preference for candidates Moore and Allen in an upcoming election. Of the 800 respondents, 300 support neither Moore nor Allen, 100 support both Moore and Allen, and 250 support only Moore. How many residents support Allen?

However, if an election were run, and Allen was running against Moore, how many of the 100 supporters of both would vote for allen?  Probably not all of them.  So Moore will probably win the election.
