I know this question isn't supposed to be hard but I can't figure it out for the life of me.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

If a certain wavefunction is made by superposition of three eigenfunctions of the momentum operator (F1, F2, and F3): wavefunction=0.465F1+0.357F2+0.810F3. The eigenvalues of those eigenfunctions are f1=+0.10, f2=-0.47, and f3=+0.35. What is the probability of a single measurement giving a momentum of +0.10? What is the probability of a single measurement giving a momentum of -0.20? and What is the expectation value of the momentum of the particle?
