    a) multiply the three numbers together \(.3\times .4\times .5\) assuming independence

    class 1, class 2, class 3 A A not A \(.3\times .4\times .5\) A not A A \(.3\times .6\times .5\) not A A A \(.7\times .4\times .5\) find these three numbers, add them up

    c) at least on A is easiest found by computing the probability that you get exactly no A and subtract that number from 1
