Question: Consider families with $4$ children each. What percentage of families would you expect to have

(a) two boys and two girls 

(b) at least one boy 

(c) at most two boys 

(d) no boys

(Assume probability of getting a girl and probability of getting a boy are equal and is $\frac{1}{2}$)

Solution: 

Step 1:

Since there are $4$ children $(n)$ = $4$. 

The event of getting boy is a success and event of getting girl is a failure. The probability of getting a boy and getting a girl is equally likely. 

So probability of getting a boy = Probability of getting a girl = $\frac{1}{2}$

That is $p$ = $q$ = $\frac{1}{2}$

Step 2: 

Binomial Distribution formula is given by

$P(x)$ = $(nCx)\ p^x\ q^{n-x}$, where $x$ = $0, 1, 2, …...,n$

Now lets consider each case.

Let $x$ be the number of boys

(a) Two boys and two girls

$\Rightarrow\ x$ = $2$.

Substituting $x$ = $2$ in the formula

$P$(Two boys and two girls) = $p(x = 2)$ = $4c_{2}\left ( \frac{1}{2} \right )^2\left ( \frac{1}{2} \right )^{4-2}$ = $4c_2\left ( \frac{1}{2} \right )^2\left ( \frac{1}{2} \right )^2$

(b) at least one boy

=> x = 1, 2, 3 or 4.

P(at least one boy) = $p(x = 1) + p(x = 2) + p(x = 3) + p(x = 4)$

= $4c_1\left ( \frac{1}{2} \right )^1\left ( \frac{1}{2} \right )^{4-1}+ 4c_2\left ( \frac{1}{2} \right )^2\left ( \frac{1}{2} \right )^{4-2}+4c_3\left ( \frac{1}{2} \right )^3\left ( \frac{1}{2} \right )^{4-3}+4c_4\left (  \frac{1}{2} \right )^4\left ( \frac{1}{2} \right )^{4-4}$ 

= $4c_1\left ( \frac{1}{2} \right )^1\left ( \frac{1}{2} \right )^3+4c_2\left ( \frac{1}{2} \right )^2\left ( \frac{1}{2} \right )^{2}+4c_3\left ( \frac{1}{2} \right )^3\left ( \frac{1}{2} \right )^1+4c_4\left ( \frac{1}{2} \right )^4\left ( \frac{1}{2} \right )^0$

= $\frac{4}{16}+\frac{6}{16}+\frac{4}{16}+\frac{1}{16}$

= $\frac{15}{16}$

c) at most two boy 

=> x = 0, 1 or 2.

P(at most two boy) = $p(x = 0) + p(x = 1) + p(x = 2)$ 

= $4c_0\left ( \frac{1}{2} \right )^0\left ( \frac{1}{2} \right )^{4-0}+4c_1\left ( \frac{1}{2} \right )^1\left ( \frac{1}{2} \right )^{4-1}+4c_2\left (  \frac{1}{2} \right )^2\left ( \frac{1}{2} \right )^{4-2}$

= $4c_0\left ( \frac{1}{2} \right )^0\left ( \frac{1}{2} \right )^4+4c_1\left ( \frac{1}{2} \right )^1\left ( \frac{1}{2} \right )^3+4c_2\left ( \frac{1}{2} \right )^2\left ( \frac{1}{2} \right )^2$

= $\frac{1}{16}+\frac{4}{16}+\frac{6}{16}$

= $\frac{11}{16}$

d) No boys 

=> x = 0

Substituting x = 0 in the formula

P(No boys) = p(x = 0) 

= $4c_0\left ( \frac{1}{2} \right )^0\left ( \frac{1}{2} \right )^{4-0}$

=$4c_0\left ( \frac{1}{2} \right )^0\left ( \frac{1}{2} \right )^4$

= $\frac{1}{16}$
