Finding probabilities with the help of binomial distribution

A regional manager visits local fast-food franchises and evaluates the speed of the service. If the manager receives her meal within 45 seconds, the server is given a free movie-admission coupon. If it takes more than 45 seconds, the server receives nothing. Throughout the company's franchises, the probability is 0.60 that a meal will be served within 45 seconds.
