There are three shooters $A$, $B$, $C$ who are shooting a target $D$ at the same time. Consider the following three events:
A)$E_a$=Shooter $A$ hits the target
B) $E_в$=Shooter $B$ hits the target
C) $E_c$=Shooter $C$ hits the target
Assume $P(E_a) =0.9$, $P(E_в) =0.8$, $P(E_c)=0.7$ and these three events are mutually independent.
What is the probability that target D was hit by some players?
