# Three students

Three students independently try to solve the problem. The first student will solve a similar problem with a probability of 0.6, the second student will solve at a probability of 0.55, and the third will solve at a probability 0.04. The problem is resolved, What is the probability that the first student has solved it?

Result

p =  0.496
