In the past year, 26% of businesses in Oregon have eliminated jobs. If seven businesses in Oregon are randomly selected, what is the probability that no more than four of the slected businesses have eliminated jobs?

That looks rather Binomial to me.
p = 0.26 = Pr(finding a job loser)
q = 1 - 0.26 = 0.74 = Pr(Finding a non-loser of jobs)
n = 7
Pr(No more than 4) = Pr(0) + Pr(1) + Pr(2) + Pr(3) + Pr(4) = 1 - Pr(7) - Pr(6) - Pr(5)
Let's see what you get.
