2                                   0.375

3                                   0.125

Choose from below .

A.The random variable is​ P(x), which is the probability of a number of girls in three births. The possible values of​ P(x) are 0.125 and 0.375. The values of the random value​ P(x) are not numerical.

B.

The random variable is​ x, which is the number of girls in three births. The possible values of x are​ 0, 1,​ 2, and 3. The values of the random value x are numerical.

C.

The random variable is​ P(x), which is the probability of a number of girls in three births. The possible values of​ P(x) are 0.125 and 0.375. The values of the random value​ P(x) are numerical.

D.

The random variable is​ x, which is the number of girls in three births. The possible values of x are​ 0, 1,​ 2, and 3. The values of the random value x are not numerical.

Answer: B. The random variable is x, which is the number of girls in three births. The possible valuesof x are 0, 1, 2, and 3. The values of the random value x are numerical.
