    suppose instead of percents you think of it as just having 46,35 and 19 planes now you know that 76%,66% and 39% of each of those respectively will be on time

    76% of the 46 is on time for flight A how many total flights are on time that is 46*76% + 35*66%+19*39% therefore the prob that a flight was ontime and is A is = on time A flights/Total On time flights =46*76%/(46*76% + 35*66%+19*39%)
