Telephone sales have skyrocketed this past month. The probability that 1 of the 4 telephone lines is busy is 75%. Therefore, currently the probability of all 4 lines being busy at the same time is about 32%. I want to reduce the probability of all telephone lines being busy at the same time. If I add 2 more telephone lines, how much do I reduce the probability of all telephone lines being busy at the same time? (Assume the probability that any telephone line is busy remains at 75%.)

4phones = 32% one phone being busy is 8%

6 phone not busy= 32- 8 =24%
