Question details

An airline finds that with probability 0.04 every passenger that makes a reservation on a particular flight will not show up. Consequently, their policy is to sell 200 reserved seats on a plane that has only 196 seats. (a) Find the probability that every person who shows up for the flight will find a seat available. (b) Use the Poisson approximation to compute this probability and compare your answer to the exact answer that you found in part (a).
