The other day, I took an online survey in which there were two choices: "True" and "False". I made my selection and was surprised to see the results:
33% of people had selected "True"
68% of people had selected "False".

My biggest surprise was that most people didn't agree with me. The answer was obviously "True", how could anyone think otherwise?

I was also slightly surprised to see that the responses totaled 101 percent. Obviously the percentages were rounded to whole numbers. What is the minimum number of people that had completed the survey?
