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 inclusion-exclusion principle to get the required percentage:

(40+50+60)-(25+20+20)+10

=95%
