Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

p(finding a job)= 0.56

p(not findung a job)= 0.44

this is a binomial problem: n=6

p(1 out of 6 find a job)=1-p(none out of the six find a job)

p(1 out of 6 find a job)= 1-(0.44)^6

p(1 out of 6 find a job)= 1-0.007256

p(1 out of 6 find a job)= 0.9927

p(1 out of 6 find a job)= 0.99

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
