An airline estimates that 98% of people booked on their flights actually show up. If the airline books 77 people on a flight for which the maximum number is 74, what is the probability that the number of people who show up will exceed the capacity of the plane?

Use the cumulative binomial distribution function.

$$\hspace{1pt} \ \Pr \left({X \leq 74}\right)=\\ \ 1- \binom { 77} { 75} {0.98}^{ 75} \left({0.02}\right)^{2} + \binom { 77} { 76} {0.98}^{ 76} \left({0. 01}\right)^{1} + \binom { 77} { 77} {0.98}^{ 77} \left({0.02}\right)^{0} \\$$

I assume you have the brain to crunch the numbers.

Well, it would be a good answer Nauseated IF you added some brackets.   And IF you were wearing your glasses.

Would you like to borrow mine?

An airline estimates that 98% of people booked on their flights actually show up. If the airline books 77 people on a flight for which the maximum number is 74, what is the probability that the number of people who show up will exceed the capacity of the plane?

P(too many people show up )

= P(75 turn up)+P(76 turn up)+P(77turn up)

$$=^{77}C_{75}(0.98^{75}*0.02^2) +^ {77}C_{76}(0.98^{76}*0.02^1) + ^{77}C_{77}*(0.98^{77}*0.02^0)\\ =^{77}C_{75}(0.98^{75}*0.02^2) +^ {77}C_{76}(0.98^{76}*0.02) + 0.98^{77}\\$$

Some CDD here:

The answer above gives the probablity they will all have a seat.

The question is:

what is the probability that the number of people who show up will exceed the capacity of the plane?

$$\ \Pr \left({X \gt 74}\right)=\\$$

In this case do not subtract CDF solution value from 1

Melody is quick and on the ball.

It’s true. Trolls are not just a little hard of hearing, they have diminished vision too. It’s a symptom of CDD :)

I added some “grace” brackets.  Hierarchy is fairly clear on this. Why does it need more?

OK calculate this:

Whinging may not be the right word but neither is bitching!

Maybe we interpret the 2 words slightly differently from one another ://

I was actually surprised because your normal recourse is to blame the poster and say that their question was ambiguous.

Usually you accept zero blame for your wrong answers.

"Also where do I need the brackets?"

P(not too many people) = 1- (prob of too many people) =  1- [ P(75 turn up)+P(76 turn up)+P(77turn up) ]

NOTE:

Nauseated often rubs me the wrong way and it is good when I can get a little of my own back BUT we are actually quite fond of one another :)

The reason that is normal is because it normally true.  The questions are ambiguous. I get to guess which arbitrary path to take, and then you take the other path and tell me my brilliant answer is wrong. See  . . . she is a skilled troll.

**Usually you accept zero blame for your wrong answers.  cheeky***

I’ve posted one wrong answer on here. That was a correction to a post where the original answer was correct.

"Also where do I need the brackets?"

P(not too many people) = 1- (prob of too many people) =  1- [ P(75 turn up)+P(76 turn up)+P(77turn up) ]

That was your equation form, not mine. Mine was neat and orderly, so it didn’t need those brackets.

No,no, no,

If such a modification was conducted it would indeed have been by Morgan le’Fay.

This used to be the realm of Camelot.  It was Nauseated himself who dethroned the Queen so he would know.

The Queen has been waiting in exile for some time now for her subjects to rally and reimpose her reign.

Occasionally she sees TitaniumRome and she wonders if he will take up arms on her behalf but then he disappeasrs into the mist again.

Now DragonSlayer554 is back perhaps he can rally some troups.....

She often wonders if  Morgan Tud will help, he could partition Morgan le'Fay to caste a spell over the realm's tyrant. It is Nauseated of whom I speak of course but Tud has a great love affair with his bottle and The Queen thinks that his loyalty to the throne has wavered.

By his words here it seems that Nauseated may even  prefered the rule of Queen Guinevere to the present chaos that assaults this fine land.

See Nauseated rarely admits when his answers are garbage.

He will argue that his wrong answers are correct until he is blue in the face.

Nauseated, you do need those brackets - I expect you already know that, but you would not want to lose MORE face would you!

You were never dethroned and your exile seems self-imposed.    All your knights are here – even Rom returned from the sea. Princess Kitty is on sabbatical, but she visits on occasion. The Ghost logged on a few days ago. Morgan Tud is sailing the seas – probably trying to find some good rum.   Sir CPhill is still pushing the bolder up the hill.

Many of your subjects came in with the wind and left the same way. They may yet return when the wind changes again.  .

But your favorite Troll is ever faithful . . . . :)

Over all, your kingdom seems well, just different with the passage of time.

It is Tuesday 8:20 pm in Sydney at the present time.

We in Australia are in front of most of the World.  We are certainly infront of Nauseated's dank cave. He lives under a toll bridge you know.  There are many toll bridges on our little Jiang.  Yes, I know, trolls do not usually live in China but this is an international forum and we have multicultural trolls. They all live in dank, dark,  stinky places though.  That is how they like it best.  They usually only emerge to demand fees and reak havoc on unsuspecting travelers as the later attempt to cross the troll's ricketty bridge.  ://

Yes well, Nauseated sure needs a 'friend' of the female gender.

That is most probably his main problem.

You see finding a mate makes a troll mellow and mellow trolls are not attractive to other trolls.

That is why the world is not over run with little trolls.

It is quite sad really - a major genetic failing within the species.

It may be improper for a humanoid subject to address the queen in such a manner, but I am a troll with K-9 DNA. Remember the dogs of the royal house have free reign of the castle and lounge wherever they desire – including the royal bed.   BTW there are a lot of fleas there.  :)

Why do you nauseate me so?

The answer is easy:

I may be nauseating to others because nausea is sympathetically induced when one is exposed to another who is experiencing the effect. The rate is about the same as a yawn. BTW: I call myself Nauseated because I’m nauseated by CDD and related disorders in others.

And yes I also knew I was just your play toy, but I like being a puppet.

It is so good to see you Chiurgeon, it has been such a long time.  The Queen was in exile for the longest time....  The nasty troll Nauesated banished her from the realm but now Nauseated laments - he sees the foolishness of his ways and begs the Queen's return.  What says your Crystal Sphere?  Is the magical realm of Camelot ready for the Queen's return?

Yes the Royal mutt AND his fleas be more nauseating - I mean nauseous than usual.  He likes to knaw on decaying vermon. This be his problem.  The rest of the realm just has to adjust to the unpleasant consequences.  The Queen is thinking of terminating this pet.  Perhaps a maltese terrier, one with good manners, may be more to Her liking.  But then, there is something about Nauseated.....  He has ATTITUDE!

Perhaps a tonic he needeth?  He needeth mouth wash, this be a FACT!

See what Camelot has to put up with from Nauseated!  That mutt has no respect for anyone or anything.  See how he speaks of you, esteemed Churgeon Tud.  The Queen offers Her deepest appologies on behalf of all Camelot, she also is again considering terminating the Mutt.  The reason the duck does not quack properly is that Nauseated terminated it!  Not even a Great Chiurgeon  can cure death!     Poor duck

Thankyou for your prompt attendance.  The knave will help you with your Rum.

Do not be a stranger to Camelot. We have many people of ill health here.  Just the other day and aging serf went upon his roof.  He is rather crotchedly so a rope he tied around himself.  Tis just as well or down he may have fell.  He carried a  great sledge hammer to fix some slipping thatch. A smaller hammer would have done the job but his eyesight is failing and he did not want to loose the sight of it. Down upon his finger he slambed the sledge!  Poor fellow, his hand is the size of a football. Could thou please attend him before you leave the realm?  Also please inform him that such activity is not appropriate at his advancing age.

Untill next time Churgeon Tud.  I bid thee adieu :)

The Queen  sees your advice to Nauseated regarding his Duck.  You may be right, you are very wise. Nauseated breath could k**l a komodo Dragon!  The poor duck would have no chance.  Poor Duck.  What a way to go.
