**MathMate**, Wednesday, August 21, 2013 at 8:17amThis is a binomial distribution with parameters

n=3 (number of trials in the experiment)

p=1/2 (probability of boys, X)

q=1-p (probability of girls)

For a random variable X with a binomial distribution (n,p,q), then

E(x)=μ=np

σ²=npq

where σ=standard deviation (of population)
