Question

A peony plant with red petals was crossed with another plant having

streaky petals. A geneticist states that 70% of the offspring resulting from this cross will have red flowers. To test this, 80 seeds from this cross were collected and germinated and 46 plants had red petals.
(a) Is there sufficient evidence at the 0.02 significance level to indicate the proportion of the hybrid plants with red petals differs from 70%? Use the P-value method in your test.
(b) What would a Type I error be in this case?
