Homework Help: Statistics

Posted by Chelsea on Saturday, May 28, 2011 at 8:44pm.

Supposed (as is roughly correct) that each child born is equally likely to be a boy or a girl and that sexes of successive children are independent. If we let BG mean that the older child is a boy, and the younger child is a girl, then each of the combinations BB, BG, GB, GG has probability 0.25. Ashley and Brianna each have two children.

a.) You know that at least one of Ashley's children is a boy. What is the conditional probability that she has two boys?

b.) You know that Brianna's older child is a boy. What is the conditional probability that she has two boys?


please help, if you can :)
