6) One of the problems encountered by corporations in America is finding an adequate number of employees who want to move into management. Recent surveys of workers in America taken by the Department of Labor in Washington D. C. revealed that only 20% of employees would like to move into management and be the boss. Suppose that a random sample of 75 U.S. workers was taken and each person was asked whether or not they would like to move into management. Find the probability that at least 18 of the 75 sampled employees would like to move into management.
Choose one answer.
a. 0.7690
b. 0.8440
c. 0.1560
d. 0.2310
e. none of these
