Probability The probability of two independent things coming up, you multiply. For example, the probability of  getting heads on a coin, twice is ¼ because it’s ½ and then ½, and when you multiply ½ by ½  you get ¼. Gregor Mendel Inheritance – used simple deduction, and idea of probability. Studied garden peas Q: Why garden peas? A: many distinct varieties; lots of offspring, quickly; strict control of mating; possess  either-or traits; can cross fertilize easily Started with true breeding plants True breeding plants – plants that if you cross with itself will produce itself. For  example, purple with purple will always produce purple. Cross fertilized two different true breeding plants in the  P generation , and their offspring  are the  F1 generation Cross fertilized two F1 generation plants and they produced mainly purple and some  white in the  F2 generation
