A fastfood chain randomly attaches coupons for prizes to the packages used to serve french fries. Most of the coupons say "Play again," but a few are winners. Of the coupons, 53 percent pay nothing, with the rest evenly divided between "Win a free order of fries" and "Win a free sundae." Complete parts (a) through (c) below.(a) If each member of a family of three orders fries with her or his meal, what is the probability that someone in the family is a winner?The probability is (Round to three decimal places as needed.)(b) What is the probability that one member of the family of three orders fries with her or his meal, what is the probability that someone in the family is a winner?
The probability is nothing.
(Round to three decimal places as needed.)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0What is the probability that one member of the family gets a sundae and another gets the sundae? The third wins fries? add that to: What is the probability that one member of the family gets a sundae and another gets the sundae? The third wins sundae?
