75 % took at least 8 math courses
of the remaining class members( 25 % remain ), 60 % took 6 or 7 math courses, thus 60 % of 25 % is
0.6x25 %=15 % took 6 or 7 math courses
so 75 % took 8 or more math courses, 15 % took 6 or 7 math courses, therefore that leaves 10 % taking fewer than 6 math courses ( 75 %+15 %=90 %, 100 %-90 %=10 %)
