normality assumption , Business Management

Most air travelers now use e-tickets. Electronic ticketing permits passengers to not worry about a paper ticket, and it costs the airline companies less to handle than paper ticketing. Though, in recent times, the airlines have received complaints from passengers regarding their e-tickets, particularly when connecting flights and a change of airlines were involved. To investigate the problem an independent watchdog agency contacted a random sample of 20 airports and collected information on the number of complaints the airport had with e-tickets during the month of March. The information is shown in the table below.
