I came across this little teaser this morning and thought I’d share it here.
I have two children, one of whom is a son born on a Tuesday. What is the probability that I have two boys?
Please select an answer from the possibilities listed in the poll below.
This is not a new problem and you can probably find the answer on the internet very quickly, but please try to work it out yourself before doing so. In other words, try thinking before you google! I’ll add a link to a discussion of this puzzle in due course..
UPDATE: Here’s the discussion that triggered this post. As you can see from the poll, most of you got it wrong!Follow @telescoper
