# Using approximation to find the binominal with a correction for continuity

Suppose that 13% of the population of the U.S. is left-handed. If a random sample of 180 people from the U.S. is chosen, approximate the probability that fewer than 26 are left-handed. Use the normal approximation to the binomial with a correction for continuity.

Round your answer to at least three decimal places. Do not round any intermediate steps.
