    Someone else might post a more systematic/concise approach, but if you look at what's given you will see that:

    500 employees
    286 grads => 214 non-grads
    222 married persons => 278 single persons
    160 men => 340 women

    286 grads
    161 married grads => 125 single grads
    104 male grads => 182 female grads

    340 women
    182 female grads => 158 female non-grads

    278 single persons
    125 single grads => 153 single non-grads

    160 men
    129 married men => 31 single men

    104 male grads
    82 married male grads => 22 single male grads

    31 single men
    22 single male grads => 9 single male non-grads

    153 single non-grads
    9 single male non-grads => 144 single female non-grads
