b. What is the probability that more than nine companies that outsource overseas use a consultant?
c. What is the probability that none of the companies that outsource overseas use a consultant?
d. What is the probability that between four and seven (inclusive) companies that outsource overseas use a consultant?
e. Construct a graph for this binomial distribution. In light of the graph and the expected value, explain why the probability results from parts (a) through (d) were obtained.
