A:

Answer:0.23328,2.4Step-by-step explanation:Given that an airport limousine can accommodate up to four passengers on any one trip. The company will accept a maximum of six reservations for a trip, and a passenger must have a reservation. Assuming independence we can say persons who do not show up is binomial with p = 0.4 and n = 6a) If six reservations are made, what is the probability that at least one individual with a reservation cannot be accommodated on the trip= [tex]P(X\leq 1)\\=0.23328[/tex]b) Expected no of available places = E(x)=[tex]np = 6(0.4) = 2.4[/tex]
