    Easy probability question




    can anyone please help me with the easy probability question, "If there were 3062 people in a room and 90% of them had a red shirt on, 60% had jeans on, and 32% had sandals on, how many people in the room are wearing a red shirt, jeans and sandals?

    Without further information it could be anywhere from 0 to 32%.
