it real confusing..

= (80 - 75) + (70) (100-80)
= 5 + 14
= 19%

I didn't get any of the answer choices...got 34
Set Total = 100
More than or equal 6 hours of sleep = 20
Not Tried: 70/100 * 20 = 14

Less than 6 hours of sleep = 80
Not Tried: 25/100 * 80 = 20

Total Not Tried = 14+20 = 34
Don't know what's wrong.
