    You will need to find P(3), P(4), and P(5). Add those values for your probability.

    You can use a binomial probability table, or calculate by hand using the following formula:
    P(x) = (nCx)(p^x)[q^(n-x)]

    x = 3,4,5
    n = 5
    p = 130/680 = 0.19
    q = 1 - p = 1 - 0.19 = 0.81

    I'll let you take it from here.
