Double switch and single switch in same box?


I have a double box i need to wire up. There will be a single switch and a double switch in the box. I have one power wire coming in. I also have to hook up a wire that will feed another source in the same box so a total of five wires in the box. The double switch is for an exhaust fan and light. The single switch is for a recessed light. The other wire leads to a gfi and light. I can wire the double switch for the fan and the light and aslo to get power to my gfi. How do i get power to the songle switch next to the double switch pigtail?

Connect the incoming hot to the outgoing hot and add 2 pigtails, one to feed each switch.
