in a family with two children, what are the probabilities of two boys, the first is a girl the second is a boy, neither is a girl, at least one girl, assuming that the birth of boys and girls is equally likely.

    The different possibilities are:

    bb
    bg
    gb
    gg

    From this, you can figure out how many of the four possibilities fit. (Having two boys is the same as having no girls.)

    I hope this helps.
