65% of the employees in a firm are graduates and 35% did not receive any graduate trainig.
Among the graduates, 40% have an experience of less than 10 years. Similarly, 18% of the non graduate emplyees have an experience of more than 10 years.

answer: i did it like that

GRADUATES NON GRADUATES
EMPLOYESS 65% 35% (total=100)
less thn 10 yrs 40% 25%(total 65)
mre than 10 years 17% 18% (total 35)

The toal of grduates column is 122, for non graduats is 78% for the total column is 200
