Airline routes 2009-12-01
Kapilan pose la question :
Please answer the following question: From A to B there are four possible air routes. From B to C there are five possible air routes. From C to D there are three possible air routes. How many different trips can be taken from A to D and back without taking the same route on any section of the return trip?

An airline company knows that 8% of it's passengers will not show up for their scheduled flights. A plane has 175 seats.

a) What is the probability that 10 passengers or fewer will not show up?

b) What is the probability that 10 to15 passengers will not show up?

c)What is the probability that exactly 10 passengers will not show up?

d) What is the probability that more than 19 passengers will not show up?

Overbooking flights 2008-07-10
DON pose la question :
Overbooking by Airlines This is a simplified version of calculations used by airlines when they overbook flights. They realize that a certain percentage of ticketed passengers will cancel at the last minute. Therefore, to avoid empty seats, they sell more tickets than there are seats, hoping that just about the right number of passengers show up. We will assume that the no-show rate is five percent. For a flight with 220 seats, the airline wants to find how sensitive various probabilities are to the number of tickets it issues. In particular, it wants to calculate
a) the probability that more than 225 passengers show up
b) the probability that more than 220 passengers show up
c) the probability that at least 215 seats will be filled
d) the probability that at least 210 seats will be filled.
To assess the benefits and drawbacks of issuing various numbers of tickets on an airline flight with 220 seats, create a table showing as many different scenarios as possible (table only on one page when printed) and use a second page for your analysis and recommendation to the airline. Which are the good cases, which are the bad cases for the airline?
