Problem 25BSC

Using Computer Results. In Exercises, refer to the accompanying Excel display. (In one of Mendel’s hybridization experiments with peas, the probability of offspring peas having green pods is ¾, or 0.75.) The display lists the probabilities obtained by entering the values of n = 6andp = 0.75. Those probabilities correspond to the numbers of peas with green pods in a group of six offspring peas.

Genetics Find the probability that at least two of the six offspring peas have green pods. If at least two offspring peas with green pods are required for further experimentation, is it reasonable to expect that at least two will be obtained?
