"At least one" = either 1, 2 or 3.
If the events are independent, the probability of both/all events occurring is determined by multiplying the probabilities of the individual events.
for 1: .0479 * (1.0479)^2 = ?
for 2: .0479^2 * (1.0479) = ?
for 3: .0479^3 = ?
Eitheror probabilities are found by adding the individual probabilities.
