Because not all airline passengers show up for their reserved seat, an airline sells 125 tickets for a flight that holds only 115 passengers. The probability that a passenger does not show up is 0.05, and the passengers behave independently. Round your answers to four decimal places (e.g. 98.7654).

a) What is the probability that every passenger who shows up can take the flight?

b) What is the probability that the flight departs with at least one empty seat?
