There is an equal probability of boys being theatregoers as there is to girls, yet an EQUAL number of boys and girls may also be theatregoers which makes the probability not equal to 0.5, but a smaller percentage. Given x as the probability that g = b, then the probability in question is equal to (1  x)/2.
One unanswered question is whether any boy or girl can chose not to be a theatregoer even if there is a promotional ticket available.
