We are told that together, the number of Korean War and WWII veterans in 2009 is X%. Using the information from the previous problem we have X% = 12.4% + 10.7% = 23.1%. That means the number of Vietnam era veterans is 23.1% + 11.6% = 34.7% of the veterans in the United States in 2009. Thus, there were 21,854,374(0.347) = 7,583,467.778 ≈ 7,583,468 veterans of the Vietnam era in the United States in 2009.
