1500 families with 2 children were selected randomly, and the following data were recorded:

Compute the probability of a family, chosen at random, having 1 girl

Also, check whether the sum of these probabilities is 1.

Answer:

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.

ANSWER:

Numbers of families having 1 girls = 814

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

=\frac{814}{1500}

=\frac{407}{750}

Yes, the sum of these probabilities is 1.
