Probability denotes the possibility of something happening. It's a field of mathematics that studies the probability of a random event occurring. From 0 to 1, the value is expressed. Probability is a mathematical concept that predicts how likely occurrences are to occur. The definition of probability is the degree to which something is likely to occur.

Numbers of families having 1 girls = 814

Probability = Numbers of families having 1 girls/Total numbers of families
