Relative to a group of other airlines, and airline’s degree of competition, c. for daily flights from City X to Destination Y is given by the formula c =(T/f)+(n/4), where the airline has f daily flights from City X to Destination Y, n of the other airlines in the group each have at least 1 daily flight from City X to Destination Y, and these airlines have a combined total of T daily flights from City X to Destination Y. According to the table above, what is Airline A’s degree of competition, relative to Airlines B,C, and D, for daily flights from City X to Los Angeles?

Option A:

1

Option B:

5/4

Option C:

7/4

Option D:

2

Option E:

9/4

Option D is the correct answer.

We’re given the equation: (T/f) + (n/4)

We’re told to calculate (using that equation) for Airline A and Los Angeles. So, we just have to pull data from the table and plug in the numbers:

F = number of flights that Airline A has to Los Angeles

F = 4

n = number of OTHER airlines with at least 1 flight to Los Angles.

n = 3

t = combined flights to Los Angeles from the other airlines

t = 5

Now, plug in: 5/4 + 3/4 = 8/4 = 2.
