Mendelian GeneticsWhen Mendel conducted his famous genetics experiments with peas, one sample of offspring consisted of 428 green peas and 152 yellow peas. Based on those results, estimate the probability of getting an offspring pea that is green. Is the result reasonably close to the expected value of 3/4, as claimed by Mendel?

Answer

Step 1 of 2

Number of peas=428+152=580

the probability of getting an offspring peas that is green=428/580=0.74

Step 1 of 2

The experimental probability is very close to ¾=0.75

Yes, the result reasonably close to the expected value of 3/4, as claimed by Mendel
