Gregor Mendel is credited

with discovering the genetic basis of inheritance. In his famous experiments with

pea color, he expected that of 580 offspring plants, 75% would have green peas and

25% would be yellow.

After conducting the experiment

there were 152 yellow peas

and 428 green peas


What is the probability of this result occurring by random chance alone?


What is the 99% confidence interval estimate of the percentage of green peas?


Given the results do not exactly match the prediction, can we conclude. Mendel was wrong?

Why or why not (Hint: it's why not)?
