Probability help request
I just can't solve this task, I could reach the equation can any one please help me assembling the equations ?
-It's known that if 6 employees of a huge factory are being checked then the probability that at the most 5 of them smoke is bigger in 0.764702 from the probability that all 6 employees smoke.
A- What is the probability that all 6 are smoking?
Can anyone please help me with this I have been trying to solve it desperately.
Is there any way to solve it otherwise ? this method I didn't study yet.
we are asked to solve it according to Bernoulli's table.
It would help if you included information like that in the original posting of the question.

I don't see the point in doing it the way you have apparently been told to. Maybe someone else has the time and the inclination.
