$P(A) = 0.8$ $\implies$ $P(A') =$ $1  0.8 = 0.2$
$P(B) = 0.5$ $\implies$ $P(B')$ = $1  0.5 = 0.5$
$P(C) = 0.3$ $\implies$ $P(C')$ = $1  0.3 = 0.7$
$P$(No event will occur): =$ 0.2 * 0.5 * 0.7 = 0.07$
$P$(at least 1 event will occur): $1  0.07 = 0 .93$

P(at least A or B or C )= P(A u B u c)
= 0.8+0.5+0.3(0.8*0.5) (0.5 *0.3) (0.8*0.3)+(0.8*0.5*0.3)
=1.60.67
=0.93
