In a certain country, the probability that a baby that is born is a boy is 0.52 and the probability that a baby that is born is a girl is 0.48. A family has two children. If X is the number of girls born to a family, find the probability that the family has 0, 1, or 2 girls.

 

Create the binomial distribution table for P (X).

P(0 girls)  = (.52)^2  ≈ .27

P(1 girl )   = 2C1 * (.52)(.48) ≈ .50

P(2 girls)  = (.48)^2   ≈ .23

2C1 * (.52)(.48) ≈ .50

 

is that a C before the 2 and after the 1?
