You can draw a Venn diagram of three sets, all with mutual intersection. Fill in all the numbers in a logical way, and that will leave you with a percentage for each of the spaces. Add them up to find 95% as the total.
Alternatively, you can use the inclusionexclusion principle to get the required percentage:
(40+50+60)(25+20+20)+10
=95%
