credited with discovering the genetic basis <span class="hljs-keyword">of</span> inheritance. In his famous experiments with pea color, he expected that <span class="hljs-keyword">of</span> <span class="hljs-number">580</span> offspring plants, <span class="hljs-number">75</span>% would have green peas <span class="hljs-keyword">and</span> <span class="hljs-number">25</span>% would be yellow. After conducting the experiment there were <span class="hljs-number">152</span> yellow peas <span class="hljs-keyword">and</span> <span class="hljs-number">428</span> green peas. a. What <span class="hljs-keyword">is</span> the probability <span class="hljs-keyword">of</span> <span class="hljs-keyword">this</span> result occurring <span class="hljs-keyword">by</span> random chance alone? b. What <span class="hljs-keyword">is</span> the <span class="hljs-number">99</span>% confidence interval estimate <span class="hljs-keyword">of</span> the percentage <span class="hljs-keyword">of</span> green peas? c.
