While visiting a military hospital overseas, I was told that exactly 2/3 of soldiers had lost an eye, 3/4 had lost an arm, and 4/5 had lost a leg. I remarked to my friend, “Then it must be that at least 26 of the men must have lost all three- an eye, an arm, and a leg”.
This being the case, can you say exactly how many men were in the hospital?
