Question #54553

What is the probability of three daughters to a couple in three children and how?

(1) 1/4

(2) 1/8

(3) 1/16

(4) 3/8

(1) 1/4

(2) 1/8

(3) 1/16

(4) 3/8

Expert's answer

The probability of daughter in each separate case is 1/2 because the probabilities of boy and girl are equal.

Thus, the probability of three daughters is a product of probabilities of daughter in each case:

1/2 *1/2 *1/2 = 1/8

Thus, the probability of three daughters is a product of probabilities of daughter in each case:

1/2 *1/2 *1/2 = 1/8
