# The probability of peas with green pods

The accompanying table describes results from eight offspring peas. The random variable x represents the number of offspring peas with green pods.

Table

Probabilities of Numbers of Peas with

Green Pods Among 8 Offspring Peas

x(Number of Peas with Green Pods) P(x)

0 0+

1 0+

2 0.001

3 0.026

4 0.067

5 0.188

6 0.331

7 0.283

8 0.104

a) Find the probability of getting exactly 7 peas with green pods. Type an integer or a decimal

b) Find the probability of getting 7 or more peas with green pods. Type an integer or a decimal

c) Which probability is relevant for determining whether 7 is an unusually high number of peas with green pods, the result from a part (a) or part (b)?

d) Is 7 an unusually high number of peas with green pods.? Why or why not?

#### Solution Preview

Thanks for letting me work on your post. Here is my explanation:

a) This is a probability distribution. when x = 7, P(x = 7) =0.283. ...
