Three coins are tossed simultaneously 200 times with the following frequencies of different outcomes:-

Outcome | 3 heads | 2 heads | 1 head | No head |

Frequency | 23 | 72 | 77 | 28 |

If the three coins are simultaneously tossed again, compute the probability of 2 heads coming up.

1500 families with 2 children were selected randomly, and the following data were recorded:-

Number of girls in a family | 2 | 1 | 0 |

An organization selected 2400 families at random and surveyed them to determine a relationship between income level and the number of vehicles in a family. The information gathered is listed in the table below:-

Monthly income (in Rs.) |
Vehicles per family | |||

0 | 1 | 2 | Above 2 | |

Less than 7000 | 10 | 160 | 25 | 0 |
