Question: Airlines overbook sell more tickets than there are seats flights

Airlines overbook (sell more tickets than there are seats) flights, based on past records that indicate that approximately 5% of all passengers fail to arrive on time for their flight. Sup-pose a plane will hold 250 passengers, but the airline books 260 seats. What is the probability that at least 1 passenger will be bumped from the flight?
