no. of chances that a child is a boy=1
total no. of chances=2 (boy + girl)
probability that a child was a boy=p=1/2
probability that a chid is not a boy or it is a girl =q=1-p=1/2
as no. of children,n=3
 
req probaility=P(x=1)=nC1q2p1
[P(x=r)= nCrqn-rpr]
 
req probability=3/8

The sample event for 3 children can be written as
BBB, BBG, BGB,GBB,GGB,GBG,BGG,GGG
Since the question demands atleast 1 boy child we see that the probability is 7/8
 
THEREFORE THE REQUIRED PROBABILTY IS 7/8

According to me there are 4 possible outcomes.

  BGG  BBGbbg,bgg,bbb,ggg

Out of these four outcomes, 33 are favorable. So the probability should be ¾.
