To be obtuse - not enough information to say. Could have been meat dishes that weren't beef or chicken. If beef and chicken were the only meat dishes then (1 - 5/12 - 1/3) of the guests chose vegetarian, (assuming they only ate one dish the proportions should all add to 1) and this proportion is equal to 69 guests. (if you're still unsure, if half of the guests chose vegetarian, and 30 chose vegetarian, how many guests were there overall?)

If it’s an Asian wedding then about 1000 people and you only know 10 of them 😌

Make both the beef and the chicken out of 12.
5/12 chose chicken, 4/12 chose beef (4/12 is the same as 1/3)
So now you know 9/12 chose meat which is 3/4 of the guests but the other 1/4 of the guests chose vegetarian.

If 1/4 of the guests (69) are vegetarian, 3/4 must be meat eaters (3 times 69)

So how many guests came to the wedding?
