From the above question, the data of interest is,

Total Number of balls batswoman played = 30

Number of times batswoman hits a boundary =6

Therefore, we can say,

Number of times batswoman could not hit a boundary =24

P(she did not hit a boundary)

=24/30 =0.80

Ans:0.80

Number of girls in a family | 2 | 1 | 0 |

Number of families | 475 | 814 | 211 |

** Answer: **

From the above question, the data that we can take is,

Total Number of families= 475+814+211 = 1500

Number of families having 2 girls in the family =475

We know:

Empirical (or experimental) probability P(E) of this event can be written as

P(Family, chosen at random has 2 girls) =

= 475/1500 = 19/60
