According to the New York Times/CBS poll of March, 2005, 87% agreed that it should be the government's responsibility to provide a decent standard of living for the elderly, and 54% agreed that it would be a good idea to invest part of their Social Security taxes on their own.
What is the smallest percentage of people who could have agreed with both statements?
What is the largest percentage of people who could have agreed with both statements?

perhaps I am missing something but
wouldn't the smallest percentage possible of people agreeing with both statements be 0% ?
and the largest percentage possible agreeing with both parts be 54% ?

The 54% is correct but it says the smallest percent is incorrect

try this:
n(A or B) = n(A) + n(B)  n(A and B)
= .87 + .54  n(A and B)
= 1.41  n(A and B)
since we can't go over 100%
the n(A and B) must be .41 or 41% ????

t = 1
(2011) 3,000 3,500 4,000 4,500
t = 2
(2012) 2,000 2,334 2,667 3,000
t = 3
(2013) 1,500 1,750 2,000 2,250
t = 6
(2016) 857 1,000 1,143 1,286
