    In a replication of Mendel's hybridization experiment a student observed 161 peas with yellow pods in 600 offspring peas, rather than the 25% (150 peas) predicted by Mendel.

    Assuming that Mendel's conclusions are correct estimate the probability of getting at least 161 peas with yellow pods among the 600 offspring peas.

    Please explain. Thank you.
