Problem 8BSC

Describe the simulation procedure. (For example, to simulate 10 births, use a random number generator to generate 10 integers between 0 and 1 inclusive, and consider 0 to be a male and 1 to be a female.)

Simulating Hybridization When Mendel conducted his famous hybridization experiments, he used peas with green pods and yellow pods. One experiment involved crossing peas in such a way that 75% of the offspring peas were expected to have green pods, and 25% of the offspring peas were expected to have yellow pods. Describe a procedure for using software or a TI-83/84 Plus calculator to simulate 20 peas in such a hybridization experiment. Each of the 20 individual outcomes should be an indication of one of two results: (1) The pod is green; (2) the pod is yellow.

Solution 8BSC

Out of 100%, 75% of the offspring peas were expected to have green pods and 25% of the offspring peas were expected to have yellow pods so for simulation generate random two-digit integers corresponding to yellow and green pods from the random generator from a computer. And

(1) Let 01 to 75 represent that the pod is green.

(2) Let 76 to 00 represent that the pod is yellow.
