I am finding difficulty trying to answer the second part of this question. The answer is one this website but I do now get how they worked it out. https://nrich.maths.org/4932
I also know that binomial and normal distribution plays a big part in this.
An airline flies a plane with 400 seats. Each passenger who buys a ticket arrives for the flight (that is, does not miss the flight) with probability 0.95. If the airline sells 400 tickets what is the expected number of empty seats? (I found the mean to be 380 and the Sd to be 20)
The airline regularly books more than 400 passengers for its flights. How many tickets can the airline sell if it wants to have to refuse passengers who arrive for the flight with tickets in no more than about two per cent of the flights? (I do not know how to reach the answer of 411. Can someone explain with step by step working?)
