Sara is reviewing recent orders at her deli to determine which meats she should order. She found that of 1,000 orders, 390 customers ordered turkey, 345 customers ordered ham, and 300 customers ordered neither turkey nor ham. Based on this data, how many of the next 1,000 customers will order both turkey and ham? Show your work, and use complete sentences. My gut wants to say that it will be 700 people, but I feel like that's almost too easy to be true.

    \[390+345+300>1,000\] so some people must have ordered both
