Please help with the following probability of selection problems. Provide step by step calculations.

There are 1000 students in the senior class at a certain high school. The high school offers two advanced placement math / stat classes to seniors only: AP Calculus and AP Statistics. The roster of the Calculus class shows 95 people; the roster of the Statistics class shows 86 people. There are 43 overachieving seniors on both rosters.
