Simulate the situation described in Thought Questions 3, 4, and 5. Assume that the probability of a boy for each birth is 0.51 and the probability of a girl is 0.49. Simulate at least 100 families with four children. Find and report the proportion of your simulated families for which there are no boys. Using the probability rules from Chapter 14, calculate the exact probability that a family with four children will not have any boys, assuming that the probability of a boy is 0.51 for each birth. Compare the result with the results of your simulation.
