Airline overbooking is a common practice. Many people make reservations on several flights due to uncertain plans and then cancel at the last minute or simply fail to show up. Eagle Air is small commuter airline. Their planes hold only 25 people. Past records indicate that 20% of the people making a reservation do not show up for the flight. Suppose that Eagle Air decides to book 18 people for each flight.
