Question 1 Report
Mrs. Jones is expecting a baby. The probability that it will be a boy is 1/2 and probability that the baby will have blue eyes is 1/4. What is the probability that she will have a blue-eyed boy?
To determine the probability of having a blue-eyed boy, we need to consider the probability of two independent events happening together: the baby being a boy and having blue eyes. The probability of having a boy is 1/2, and the probability of having blue eyes is 1/4. Since these events are independent, we can multiply their probabilities to find the probability of both events happening together: 1/2 * 1/4 = 1/8 Therefore, the probability that Mrs. Jones will have a blue-eyed boy is 1/8.
