In the results of the gender-selection technique, 973 births consisted of 508 baby girls and 465 baby boys. In analyzing these results, assume that boys and girls are equally likely a. Find the probability of getting exactly 508 girls in 973 births. b. Find the probability of getting 508 or more girls in 973 births. It boys and girls are equally likely, is 508 girls in 973 births unusually high? c. Which probability is relevant for trying to determine whether the technique is effective: the result from part (a) or the result from part (b)? d. Based on the results, does it appear that the gender-selection technique is effective? a. The probability of getting exactly 508 girls in 973 births is (Round to four decimal places as needed)
