How probable is it that at least one of the women was a dishwasher?

On Monday this week Mr. Munton had a meeting at the Cultural Center, and on Friday he had another meeting. Of the conference rooms which his company uses, 3 face North, 3 face South, 2 face East and 4 face West. All the rooms receive equal use. How probable is it that although he went to meetings on both Monday and Friday, Mr. Munton only saw the view from one side of the Cultural Center?

Please show me which probability formulas you used and a detailed example of how you got the answer you did. Thanks.
