An airline knows that over the long run, 90% of passengers who reserve seats show up for flight. On a particular flight with 300 seats, the airline accepts 324 reservations. If passengers show up independently what is the probability the flight will be overbooked? Suppose that people travel in groups, does this increase or decrease the chance of overbooking?

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
