On Hustlers and Burglars

Mr. Fagin introduced his gang of burglars, pickpockets and street hustlers to Oliver twist.
We have here 15 burglars, 12 pickpockets and 13 street hustlers, 5 of them are also burglars and pickpockets, 6 are also burglars and street hustlers and 4 are also pickpockets and street hustlers. Tom and Dee are my deputies they are professionals, they can do all three jobs.
Now Oliver smart kid, how many kids I am leading with out you?

Sub Total = (15+12+13)=40, now we will subtract the kids with the two "skills" (5+6+4)=15, but now we will add the two deputies which are multi skilled.
Total=40-15+2=27 kids in Mr. Fagin's Gang now Oliver Twist became No 28.
