  2. "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 = ?

    Either-or probabilities are found by adding the individual probabilities.
