Question: An airline serves lunch in the first class cabin Customers

An airline serves lunch in the first- class cabin. Customers are given a choice of either a sandwich or chicken salad. There are 12 customers in first-class, and the airline loads seven of each meal onboard. You would like to simulate the probability that there will not be enough of one or the other meal to meet the preferences of the customers. Assume the probability is 0.6 that a customer requests the sandwich and 0.4 that he or she requests the salad and is independent from one person to the next. You plan to simulate the choices for 100 sets of 12 customers. For parts (a) to (e), specify what you would answer for each of the questions to accomplish this simulation using Remember that the simulator will not allow you to specify different weights for the outcomes, so you need to figure out how to incorporate the 0.4 and 0.6 probabilities into your simulation.
a. How many sets of numbers do you want to generate?
b. How many numbers per set?
c. Number range (e. g., 1– 50).
d. Do you wish each number in a set to remain unique?
e. Do you wish to sort the numbers that are generated?
f. Explain how you would use your results to estimate the desired probability.
