"..58% of all families eat turkey at holiday meals, 44% eat ham, and 16% have both turkey and ham to eat at holiday meals."

What is the probability that a family selected at random had only ham without having turkey at their holiday meal?

Could someone explain how to do this? I'm really lost.

Complete this Karnaugh table:

$\begin{tabular}{l | c | c | c} & H & H\, ' & \\ \hline T & 0.16 & & 0.58\\ \hline T\, ' & & & \\ \hline & 0.44 & & 1 \\ \end{tabular}
