What is the probability that at most two of the flights are late in a day?
What is the probability that at least one of the flights is late in a day?
What are the mean and standard deviation of the number of flights arriving
late?

Company revealed that the length of the calls, in minutes, follows the normal
probability distribution. The mean length of time per call was 4.2 minutes and the
standard deviation was 0.6 minutes.
a. What is the probability that the calls made from the corporate offices of XYZ
Company last less than 5 minutes?
