Some of the children at the nursery arrive by car.

40% of the children are boys

70% of the boys arrive by car

60% of the girls arrive by car

What is the probability that a child chosen at random from the nursery will arrive by car

Let us see if I can figure this one out!

Will assume that there are 100 kids.

100 x 40% =40 of them are boys

40 x 70% = 28 boys arrive by car.

100 - 40 = 60 - Number of girls in Nursery.

60 x 60% = 36 of them arrive by car.

28 boys + 36 girls = 64 - kids that arrive by car.

64 / 100 = 64% - probability of a randomly picked kid that he/she arrived by car.
