$\frac{3}{8}$
P(E) = $\frac{no.\ of\ outcomes\ in\ favor}{Total\ no.\ of\ outcomes}$ If M represents a male child and F represents a female child, the set of equally likely outcomes for the children’s genders when three children are selected is: S = {MMM, MMF, MFM, MFF, FMM, FMF, FFM, FFF}. E: exactly one female child Favorable outcomes= {MMF, MFM, FMM} P(E) = $\frac{3}{8}$
