Births: Sampling Distribution of Sample Proportion When three births are randomly selected, the sample space for genders is bbb, bbg, bgb, bgg, gbb, gbg, ggb, and ggg. Assume that those eight outcomes are equally likely. Construct a table that describes the sampling distribution of the sample proportion of girls from three births. Does the mean of the sample proportions equal the proportion of girls in three births?
