We know, Probability of an event = (Number of Favorable outcomes) / (Total Numbers of outcomes) In this case, total numbers of outcomes = 211 + 814 + 475 = 1500. (Here, total numbers of outcomes = total number of families) (i) Probability of having no girl = 211/1500 = 0.1406 (ii) Probability of having 1 girl = 814/1500 = 0.5426 (iii) Probability of having 2 girls = 475/1500 = 0.3166 (iv) Probability of having at the most one girl = (211+814) /1500 = 1025/1500 = 0.6833 (v) Probability of having more girls than boys = 475/1500 = 0.31
