Given at least 1 child in a family with 3 children is a boy

so event  1 boy in a family  ,2 boy in a family ,  3 boy in a fimily are equally likily event

 so chances of happening any event fou of three is 1/3

 so prob that family have 2 of the children are boys =1/3

There is a probability that the family contains 1 boy,2boys or 3 boys.... so chance of each event selection is 1/3 but its not the final answer..

if one boy is there then chance of selecting that 1 boy from 3 children is 1/3 

if 2 boys are there then chance of selecting one boy among them is 2/3

if 3 boys are there then chance of selecting 1 boy is 3/3 i.e., 1

Now, required probability is 1/3 * 1 / 1/3 * 1 + 1/3 * 2/3 +1/3 * 1/3 = 1/2 

This is the final answer required.

for 2 x f(x) = x-2 now, g(x)= f[x-2] =f ([x] - 2) we need to define piece wise 1) for 2 x x 2) for 3 x so g(x)=2 in case 1 and g(x)=1 in case 2 you can sustitute values of x for verification

let square root of (-3+4i) = x + iy squaring both sides, -3 + 4i = x^2 – y^2 +2xyi comparing both sides we get, x^2 – y^2 = – 3................(1) and 2xy = 4 xy = 2...................(2)...
