Question: A small commuter airline flies planes that can seat up

A small commuter airline flies planes that can seat up to 8 passengers. The airline has determined that the probability that a ticketed passenger will not show up for a flight is 0.2. For each flight the airline sells tickets to the first 10 people placing orders. The probability distribution for the number of tickets sold per flight is shown in the accompanying table. For what proportion of the airline's flights does the number of ticketed passengers showing up exceed the number of available seats? (Assume independence between the number of tickets sold and the probability that a ticketed passenger will show up.)
