A particular airline has 10 a.m. flights from Chicago to New York, Atlanta, and Los Angeles. Let *A* denote the event that the New York flight is full and define events *B* and *C* analogously for the other two flights. Suppose *P*(*A*) = .9, *P*(*B*) = .7, *P*(*C*) = .8 and the three events are independent. What is the probability that

**a.**All three flights are full? That at least one flight is not full?**b.**Only the New York flight is full? That exactly one of the three flights is full?
