If the total number of people is 100,
then the minimum number of those who are both married and have houses is 85 + 70 - 100 = 55 ...(1)
and the minimum number of those who have both car and phone is 80 + 75 - 100 = 55...(2)
From this, the number of those who are married and have house and car and phone is 55 + 55 - 100 = 10
