The probability that a regularly scheduled flight departs on time is p(d) = 0.83; the probability 
that it arrives on time is p (a) = 0.82; and the probability that it departs and arrives on time is p 
(d ∩ a) = 0.78. Find the probability that a plane (a) arrives on time, given that it departed on 
time, and (b) departed on time, given that it has arrived on time.
