\[P=\frac{26-10}{26}=0.615\](rounded)

well assuming that if they arent girls then they are boys first we find the amount of boys there are 26-10=16 so there are 16 boys then we place the number of desired out comes(16) over number of possible out comes(26) P(B)=16/26 reduce P(B)=8/13

OpenStudy (anonymous):

to get the fraction in lowest form. or u could put it as a decimal like eseidl did
