hey guys, i was wondering if anyone could do this problem since me, my dad, and some of my friends are arguing over the answer.

2/3 of the men in town are married. 3/5 of the women in town are married. What fraction of the men and women in town are not married?

my friends are saying the answer is 11/15 (which i think makes no sense), and my dad says the answer is 7/19. or is it something else? thanks in advance for helping.
