# Empirical data indicate that approximately 103 out of every 200 children buron are male. Hence the probability of a newborn being male is about 51.5%. Suppose that a family has six children, and suppose thai the genders of all the children are mutually independent. a. What is the probability that mine of the children is male? b. What is the probability that al least one of the children is male? c. What is the profobility that exactly five of the children are male?

To determine

(a)

To find out the probability that none of the children is male.

Explanation

Given information:

The data suggests that 103 out of every 200 children born are male. Hence the probability of new born male is 51.5%. Suppose that a family has six children and all children are mutually independent.

Calculation:

According to the given information the following things can be written

let us say p=probability of male=51

To determine

(b)

To find out the probability that at least one of the children is male.

To determine

(c)

To find out the probability that exactly five of the children is male.
