    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?
