Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

denote the numbers of answers for "no" as no, "not sure" as ns and "yes" as y, then we have 

no+ns =370

y-no = 340 

 and 

no+ns+y = 1000

y=1000-370 = 630 

no = 630-340 = 290 

ns = 370-290 = 80 

percentage of respondents answered "yes," "no," and "not sure" are: 

63%, 29% and 8% respectively

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
