3). The staff at the New York Zoo ticket booths are able to distribute tickets and maps to 440 customers per hour; on a typical day, an average of 352 patrons arrive to enjoy the zoo every hour. At this time there is only a single ticket booth in use. At any given point in time, what is the probability that the ticket booth is busy?  (Provide your answer in decimal - not percentage - format, rounding to 2 digits; e.g. 0.50.).
