3. At Nusaybah’s Breakfast Diner, three types of omelette are available to order: chicken, vegetarian and steak. Each omelette is served with either a portion of fries or hash browns. It is known that 20% of customers choose a chicken omelette, 70% choose a vegetarian omelette and 10% choose a steak omelette.

It is also known that 65% of those ordering the chicken omelette, 70% of those ordering the vegetarian omelette and 60% of those ordering the steak omelette, order fries.
