# Probability calculation using frequency approach

2. Suppose 90% of kids who visit a doctor have a fever, and 20% of kids with a fever have sore throats. What's the probability that a kid who goes to the doctor has a fever and a sore throat? The probability is ______.
3. The percent distribution of live multiple-delivery births (three or more babies) in a particular year for women 15-54 years old is shown is the pie chart. Find each probability.
15-19- 1.3%
20-24- 6.9%
