I got 199 for (i)
How can I do part (ii) and (iii)?
Part (ii), I tried as follows:
X - B(200, 0.97)
P(X =< 199) =
I was not able to get the answer.
Help is needed. Thanks.
205 tickets were sold, so no. of trials is 205, not 200.
... should be X~B(205,0.97).
since flight can hold 200 passengers, then total passengers that show up cannot exceed 200.
P(all show up can take flight)
E(X) = np = 205x0.97 = 198.85
P(X>198.85 | X<=200)
= [P(X=199)+P(X=200)] / P(X<=200)
= (0.162715+0.157833) / 0.738681
for (i), just to clarify ...
most probable number & expected number are not the same thing.
from GC ...
P(X=197) = 0.1095
P(X=198) = 0.1431
P(X=199) = 0.1627
P(X=200) = 0.1578
since P(X=199) has highest probability, so most probable number of passengers is 199, whereas expected number is 198.85 .
