Hello,
What equation would I use to solve the following:
If 40% of the population is unfit, and 35% of the population has heart disease, and 25% of heart disease is due to being unfit,
what is the percent of the population that is both unfit and has heart disease?
Please include the equation you use to get your answer.
Thanks.
