1. Answer:

The probability that a randomly selected American Airlines flight does not arrive on time is 0.197.

Step-by-step explanation:

The probability of the complement of an event E is the probability of it not happening.

That is,

It is provided that the probability of American Airlines flights arriving on time  (X) is,

P(X) = 0.803

Then the event of American Airlines flights not arriving on time is the complement of the event X.

Compute the probability of the complement of event X as follows:

Thus, the probability that a randomly selected American Airlines flight does not arrive on time is 0.197.
