Suppose the Internal Revenue Service is studying the category of charitable contributions. A sample of 26 returns is selected from young couples between the ages of 20 and 35 who had an adjusted gross income of more than $100,000. Of these 26 returns 6 had charitable contributions of more than $1,000. Suppose 5 of these returns are selected for a comprehensive audit.
What is the probability exactly one of the five audited had a charitable deduction of more than $1,000? (Round your answer to 4 decimal places.)
