What’s a Double Matrix question?
For those who missed the first article in this series, a Double Matrix question (also known as an Overlapping Sets question) is one that involves a certain population where each member of that population has two characteristics associated with it. Questions that fall into this category can often be solved using the Double Matrix Method.

In a group of 1000 people, each person is either left-handed or right-handed but not both. 80% of the females are left-handed, and 84% of the right-handed people are male. How many people are right-handed?
1) There are 600 males in the group
2) There are 180 left-handed males in the group
