A large number of English managers are visiting a car plant in Japan. They will be shown around in small groups of 6. Twenty percent of the managers speak Japanese. If the groups are picked at random what is the probability that there are at least 5 Japanese speakers in the group?

This is a binomial distribution with p= 0.2= 1/5, q= 0.8= 4/5. "At least 5" in a group of 6 is "either 5 or 6" so the probability is [tex]\begin{pmatrix}6 \\ 5 \end{pmatrix} (0.2)^5(0.8)+ \begin{pmatrix}6 \\ 6 \end{pmatrix} (0.2)^6= 6(0.2)^5(0.8)+ (0.2)^6[/tex].
