Selling Candy

[From the notes of Emily Moore. Extended by Sam Rebelsky]

A store stocks 10,000 candy bars. Of these, 1000 have neither nuts nor chocolate, 6500 have chocolate, and 7200 have nuts. How many have both chocolate and nuts? How many have nuts but no chocolate?

Is this question similar to any questions we've examined? Which ones is it most similar to?
