Hint:

## Blue Eyes Riddle

Both of my parents have brown eyes, as do I. My brother and my wife have blue eyes. Using the simple brown-blue model (two genes; a brown gene dominates blue gene), what are the chances of my first child having blue eyes?

Hint: Given my brother's blue eyes, what are the odds on my pair of eye-color genes?

1 in 3.

Since my brother has blue eyes (bb), both of my parents carry one brown and one blue gene (Bb). The three possibilities for my genotype, equally likely, are BB, Bb, and bB. Thus, there is a 2/3 chance that I carry a blue gene.

If I carry a blue gene, there is a 50% chance I will pass it on to my first child (and, obviously, 0% if I carry two brown genes).

Since my child will certainly get a blue gene from my wife, my gene will determine the eye color.

Multiplying the probabilities of those two independent events, there is a chance of 1/2 x 2/3 = 1/3 of my passing on a blue gene.

YES NO

They have two children, one of the child is a boy. Assume safely that the probability of each gender is 1/2.

What is the probability that the other child is also a boy?

Hint: It is not 1/2 as you would first think.

1/3

This is a famous question in understanding conditional probability, which simply means that given some information you might be able to get a better estimate.

The following are possible combinations of two children that form a sample space in any earthly family:

Boy - Girl

Girl - Boy

Boy - Boy

Girl - Girl

Since we know one of the children is a boy, we will drop the girl-girl possibility from the sample space.

This leaves only three possibilities, one of which is two boys. Hence the probability is 1/3
