No intention of gender discrimination) D={Have the disease (Affected)} Then, from the problem: P(M)=0.51 P(D|M)=0.5 ; P(D|M c )=0 From the given information, we can infer that P(D M) = P(D|M)P(M) = 0.255 P(D M c ) = P(D|M c )P(M c )=0 (a) Since we are told that 2 children are a male and a female, P(a male affected a female affected) = P(M ∩D) ∙ P(M c ∩D) = 0.255 ∙ 0 = 0 (b) In this problem, we want to get P(DD c ). Since we are not given the gender of the 2 children, we have to consider 3 cases; male and male, male and female, and female and female. First, using binomial distribution with n=2 and p=0.51, we have P(male and male)=P(MM)= 2601 . 0 ) 51 . 0 1 ( 51 . 0 2
