The accompanying table describes results from eight offspring peas. The random variable x represents the number of offspring peas with green pods.
Probabilities of Numbers of Peas with
Green Pods Among 8 Offspring Peas
x(Number of Peas with Green Pods) P(x)
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?
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. ...
The following posting helps find probability in several different contexts.
