Binominal Distribution

#1
For this kind of question would I be best using the Binominal Distribution equation?

So
(n!/X!(n-X)!) (p^X(1-p)^n-x)

Or would another probability method be preferred?

The question is below

It is found that 30% of Americans who exercise daily by running are men. A randomly selected group comprises of 20 people who exercise daily, with a certain number of men in the group. What is the approximate probability that there will be an exactly 15 males in the group?

Because the question is asking for an approximate probability - instead of an exact probability - just use a normal curve approximation.
