You'll need to use the formula
Where C is living close, and M is being a manager.
You can work out both probabilities on the RHS by dividing the number of those people by the total number of people - for example P(M) is (6+14)/125.
With those 2 values, you can just plug them into the formula to get the answer - you should get 0.3.
