a. What is the probability an individual believes the ideal number of children is 2?
b. What is the probability an individual is male and believes the ideal number o f children is 3?
c. Among the females, what’s the probability the individual believes the ideal number is 3?
d. What is the probability an individual believes the ideal number of children is at least 4?
total number of male = (8+15+74+42+21+3+1) = 164
total number of females = (11+8+92+65+35+3+2) = 216
total number of person surveyed = (164+216) = 380
a). the probability an individual believes the ideal number of children is 2 is:
= number of individual who believes the ideal number of children is 2 / total number of person surveyed
b).the probability an individual is male and believes the ideal number of children is 3 is:
= number of males who believes the ideal number of children is / total number of people surveyed
c).Among the females,the probability the individual believes the ideal number is 3 :
=number of females who believe the ideal number is 3 / total number of females
d). the probability an individual believes the ideal number of children is at least 4 :
= number of individual believes that the ideal number of children is at least 4 / total number of people surveyed
