Please on this question I know I divide but do I do them one at a time or all together. Hamster is 8%, fish 12% and dogs are 23%. I added them together and got 0.43%. The question is- The citizens of a certain community were asked to choose their favorite pet. The pie chart below shows the distribution of the citizens' answers. If there are 100,000 citizens in the community, how many chose Hamsters, Fish, or Dogs?

I have come up with different answer and either one was right. Can you help me. Thank you
