  4. so what were the other 485? If you're claiming that they're boys, then that makes 485*2 boys = 970 + (244 out of your 515 families) which leaves 786 children of whom 271 are girls.and the other 515 are ???. Or are you taking it that the girl you've been introduced to is the eldest child?

  6. Apart from 1 thing...........If one of the 2 children is a boy, the chance of the other being a girl is 2/3

  8. 1st red. You're missing the fact that there is twice as much chance of a GB combination (as BG also comes into this category) 2nd red. Surely Vice-versa? 3rd red. No. As two - 2 child families have, by definition, 4 children, the chances are that there are going to be 2 of each gender. If family A has (at least) 1 girl, the chances of the other child is a girl is one in 3. ie of the 2 boys and 2 girls, 1 girl is accounted for, leaving 1 girl and 2 boys.
  9. This is getting ridiculously obtuse. benjer - you were right. Now extend your program to show the percentage of 2 child families who had 2 boys. and you'll find .... well see what you find.

    That's a very clever answer , you cunning minx, but that's just how I found you out in the first place . plus the catnip.
  14. If you have 2 children, both girls, and 1 of them is a girl, then the 'other' child is also a girl. I really don't see your point. I have 2 daughters. If someone says to me "Do you have at least 1 daughter?", I say "Yes". If they then ask what the gender of my 'other' child is, I don't say "what other child?"
