    Probability

    "..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.

    Thanks in advance.
