Families 2

Seven hundred twenty-nine families are having six children each. The probability of a girl is 1/3, and the probability of a boy is 2/3. Find the number of families having two girls and four boys.

Correct result:

n =  240


C2(6)=(62)=6!2!(62)!=6521=15  p=(62) (13)2 (23)4=15 (13)2 (23)4=802430.3292  n=729 p=729 0.3292=240

We would be pleased if you find an error in the word problem, spelling mistakes, or inaccuracies and send it to us. Thank you!
