A) Use the multiplication rule
$P\left(allchristians\right)=62$
B) The sum of all probabilities should be $100\mathrm{%}$:
P(not a jew) $=100\mathrm{%}-12\mathrm{%}=88\mathrm{%}$
Use the multiplication rule
$P\left(nojews\right)=88$
C)Use the addition rule
P(religious) $=62\mathrm{%}+12\mathrm{%}+16\mathrm{%}=90\mathrm{%}$
P(at least one non religious)$=100\mathrm{%}-P$(all religious) $=100$
Result:
(a) $14.78\mathrm{%}$
(b) $59.97\mathrm{%}$
(c) $34.39\mathrm{%}$
